Meet the most AMAZING woman, Cindy!! I mean amazing! Not just because of her battle with stage 4 breast cancer, but because of her contagious postive attitude and her awesome faith during her fight against breast cancer!! I met her through a friend at a benefit on her behalf. My heart just tugged at the trial she is faced with. She is my age, 3 kids, similar stage in life as me. I wanted to do something for her. Originally, I wanted to donate a photography package for silent auction, but since I was moving from the area, that wouold be pointless. So the next best thing was a session of her very own. Something to document this stage of her and her families life.
If you're like me, you hear stage 4 cancer and it's very scary! I am sure it is for her family, but after you talk with her for 5 minutes, you're not scared anymore. I left this photo shoot knowing she will not only fight this, but she WILL survive this too. Her attitude is contagious and her faith in God, and his plan for her, is gigantic. You could just feel her faith at work! She is one amazing woman, no doubt!! I am a better person for knowing her, if only for a short time.
Thank you Cindy, for sharing your story with me and allowing me to photograph your beautiful family. And special thanks for allowing me to do it last minute and for your patience with me as my family moved across the country. We will always be sending prayers your way! :)
