Irreverent Cells - Midge O'Brien's Journey

Midge O'Brien was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 and refused traditional treatment, including chemotherapy. Now 72, her alternative struggle has become a model for other to learn from.

I first posted this story in May 2008 on my website but I am reposting it here because Midge has asked that I do a follow-up and would like more people to see and hopefully be inspired by her journey.

She is an inspiration for me.

wet wet wet

I used to like rain when I was a kid, but that was in California when it was hardly ever around.

Not my greatest shot, just an interesting position. That guy must do yoga.

Relaxing Saturday Morning -- NOT

from German school to recycling plant fire...poor kids have school on Saturday

So the fire wasn't all that exciting so I just shot graphically. I will be surprised if the run the pretty pictures, my guess is that only the first one will get in... but that's why I have a BLOG!

Thanks for looking!!

Only a few more games left in the season

well there are only a few more games left in the season and I couldn't be happier. Friday night football isn't all that bad but its getting colder and in a few more weeks I wont be able to stand it. This is going to be an interesting winter.

Workshop was GREAT!

these are the professionals I look up to ...

Rick Loomis of the LA Times, Jonathan Newton from the Washington Post
James Kenney the head of the photojournalism department at WKU

it turned out the llama didn't make a very good interview.

I had a blast at Workshop and even better I left the Dispatch an intern and came back a staff photographer!!
