Photo Essay Submission by Stephanie Carper
This photo makes me smile. When I look at this picture I don’t see the pain that my 19 year old daughter has endured after six years of battling thyroid cancer. I see hope. I see courage. I see pure joy. I see a young man who is serving our country who has loved my daughter since the 7th grade, who wouldn’t miss being by her side for her 4th surgery (surgery #5 coming in July). The smile on her face gives me hope that someday she will be cured.
