My dear, dear friend Jen captured this journey for me so beautifully. She has a gentle gift of capturing a moment in a quiet beautiful way. She is a gift. Gift as a friend, gift as a professional, and such a treasure to our family. I feel there is very little to say. Her pictures captured the moments. I cried all through my last treatment. And as I walked through the door to the arms of my man, I was overcome. So many people came to love and support my family. It was very humbling. Please consider letting Jen capturing your family, your event, your life.
My ugly beautiful journey has come to a chapters end.
The night before my last treatment I could not stop thinking of those who have succumbed to this terrible disease, those fighting right now, and those who will walk a similar path in the years to come. I rang the bell for them. I grieve this disease, but so many gifts came from this amazingly hard year. Before I rang the bell I cried with gratitude for those who loved us so well. The room was full of so much love and support. And that barely scratched the surface of team Tippetts. I’m absolutely humbled. Grace, such grace.
Thank you my dear Jen! There is so much of this journey I would not have remembered without you.
