I am fiercely protective of my wife.
Any man would be. Â With all sheâ€™s going through, I only want her to be seen in a good light. Â So, though Iâ€™m only an amateur with a camera, I try to use my lens and wordsÂ toÂ lift Joey up.
Like any woman, my wife is self-conscious about what cancer has done to her. Â Who she sees in the mirror these days looks like someone elseâ€¦ not the woman that she feels like she is inside. Â And it hurts her deeply.
I know that. Â So, I carefully choose what I share. Â It would break my heart to have the thousands of â€˜beforeâ€™ photos out there of her looking beautiful and healthy all these yearsâ€¦ be replaced in peopleâ€™s minds and hearts by a single â€˜afterâ€™ photo of what cancer has done.
She wants to be remembered as a singer of songs. Â A devoted wife. Â A lovingÂ mother. Â Not a cancer patient.
And so I have tried to be very careful. Â To honor her.
But my wife is braver than me.
