Peter....

There are so many times when I photograph children and visit with their parents that I feel I immediately made new friends.. it happens most of the time... I am just a sucker for all kids and new friends in general...

This is what is so great about my career.. I get to see most of my clients children grow up and I get to photograph them year after year.. and I love it.. sometimes I see them around town or at a local restaurant or maybe just by a simple e-mail.. but I try to stay connected in some way or another...

Well, I received an e-mail the other day which put a lump in my throat...I was in shock...

Little Peter, not quite 2 yet, was diagnosed with a very rare cancer in the liver. 1 in 1 million as his Dr. said...

he has gone through his first dose of chemo and is doing quite well.. he has many more treatments to go, but he is a fighter...

I am writing to ask that you all keep him in your prayers.. it is amazing what prayer can do...I do believe he will beat this, but sending well wishes and prayer their way will just ensure a faster and speedy recovery...

Thank you....

We will keep Peter and his family in our thoughts and prayers. It makes me so sad when children get sick.
