I can't remember if I've shared this on my blog before, but my husband David is a survivor of childhood cancer. He had Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) when he was a little boy, and he had to have his left arm amputated in order to remove a tumor. One of the things that made a big impression on me is the way David and his family handled David's disease with such grace, faith, optimism, and HOPE. David told me that for every doctor's visit or chemotherapy treatment his mother made sure that there was a GOOD memory of that day to balance out any possible bad memories. The good memory was often something as simple as a walk through a garden, or occasionally something as exciting as a trip to play miniature golf.
Jay's HOPE is an organization here in middle Georgia whose mission is to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families. I could not be prouder to be a part of their newest program Clicks for HOPE. I hope that through this program I can capture some of the good memories for families affected by childhood cancer.
My first session was with beautiful Nakeia and her family. They are such genuine people and truly beautiful inside and out. We had so much fun at their session, and I'm so happy to say that Nakia has now been cancer free for two years!
