Three years I was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma, a type of cancer that attacked the lymph system in my body. Through prayer, chemo, and the amazing love and support of my family I have been cured from the disease. I just completed my annual set of tests including a full body PET SCAN and CAT SCAN. All the tests came out negative and I have received a clean bill of health.
The process of going through cancer changed my life forever. It has opened my eyes to a deeper level of suffering and compassion. There is not a day that goes by that I forget about my experience of cancer. Since cancer my goal is to use this gift of life that I have been given and try and serve others. This year I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Africa photograph the people. I was able to use my compassion to help others with my love of photography. The people in Africa are amazing and have such a deep sense of gratefulness for their lives in a country of such suffering in need. Below is a picture of me visiting a village in Rwanda. The children looking at the camera are looking a pictures of themselves and for the first time.
