Jan, A Cancer Survivor

Jan, who was on the breast cancer walk, got to carry one of the pink banners because she is a cancer survivor. Jan owns one of the consignment shops that I visit regularly and where I photographed my July Red Theme Day photograph. Despite being a good-sized town, St Paul is really St. Small when it comes to knowing one another. I feel privileged to know Jan--another one of my courageous women friends. Please click here to see some more photographs I took of women involved in the walk I observed last Sunday.

  2. I agree that these are courageous women. I don't think anyone could go through that battle and not come out stronger and more courageous on the other end.

  4. It's great to know that a large city can be "small" in terms of being people-friendly.

  5. Beau portrait et beau combat. il faut beaucoup de force pour se battre contre "Le Crabe" (surnom en France du cancer)


    Beautiful portrait and beautiful combat. one needs much force to fight against “Crab” (nickname in France of cancer)
