A little less than a month ago, my dear Uncle Benny lost his battle with cancer just weeks before his oldest daughters wedding. It has been rough going for our my Auntie & cousins as of late and he will truly be missed. Just over a year ago I had the pleasure of photographing Laurie and Andrews wedding at Edgewood South Lake Tahoe. Right after the wedding, Andrew shockingly found out that he had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Obviously devastated, it was so hard to believe that someone at his young age could get such a terrible disease. My thoughts and prayers have been with him and his family ever since. I have been periodically checking in on his progress on the blog his family has set up for him. He and I had a connection once we first met since we share some common interests. He recently underwent some serious surgery and I hope that he has a speedy and successful recovery. If you like to offer some kind words of support to him and his family, you can do so at his blog here. Get well Andrew and I’m optimistic that we will get a surf session when you recover.
