This is my wife’s baby sister Mindy. She lost her battle with cancer at the age of 11.I did this portrait as a gift for my mother-in-law.
Mindy had retinoblastoma, which is basically cancer of the eye. I never got to meet Mandy, she has been gone for 28 yrs. Her family misses her very much every day. My wife tells me about her. She was a pretty amazing little girl considering what she went through. My wife is working on writing her story.
Thank you for taking this walk with me.
