I am fiercely protective of my wife.

Any man would be.  With all she’s going through, I only want her to be seen in a good light.  So, though I’m only an amateur with a camera, I try to use my lens and words to lift Joey up.

Like any woman, my wife is self-conscious about what cancer has done to her.  Who she sees in the mirror these days looks like someone else… not the woman that she feels like she is inside.   And it hurts her deeply.

I know that.  So, I carefully choose what I share.  It would break my heart to have the thousands of ‘before’ photos out there of her looking beautiful and healthy all these years… be replaced in people’s minds and hearts by a single ‘after’ photo of what cancer has done.

She wants to be remembered as a singer of songs.  A devoted wife.  A loving mother.   Not a cancer patient.

And so I have tried to be very careful.  To honor her.

But my wife is braver than me.
