For Kendall

I met Kendall when she showed up for the art bazaar my friends put together for me when I was first diagnosed. She’s young and has been fighting colon cancer for three and a half years. I had eight chemotherapy treatments, Kendall has had eighty.

Kendall is in a substantial amount of pain and the cancer is growing at a rapid pace. She’s chosen to stop chemo and enjoy what time she has with her husband. I visited Sunday, honored that she gave me a moment of her time to take her photo. I told her I could do absolutely anything she wanted with it. She said, “I want to look fierce, with fiery hair.” Not a hard task for such a fierce fighter.

She asks that we all appreciate what we have while we have it. Here is the portrait I made of her:
