Cancer is not a word you ever want to hear. With it comes such a range of emotions and feelings. I don’t know if I can think of anything worse than knowing that I might not be around to watch my children grow up. When I found out that the father of my son’s best friend had been diagnosed with brain cancer I felt heart broken for this amazing family. The weather and timing worked out that we were able to spend a Saturday morning down at KVI beach playing together. As I spent time with them I could feel the love that was so strong between all of them. As we talked I could hear the pain and the fight that was happening so that this brave man could be alive to watch his boys grow. I cried as I edited the images because the emotions were so real and raw. I pray with all my heart that Marty will be around for a long time to come.
