This is Michael, whom I met through the organization Compassion for Kids. Mike recently graduated from high school, although he spent much of his senior year undergoing cancer treatment. In a little over a week, he’ll have major surgery to remove a tumor in his lung. Today several of Mike’s friends and family got together for a surprise picnic to show their support for him. His mother invited me to come along to take photographs. It’s an honor for me to be able to provide these photographs for his family.

One of his mother’s friends gave him a cigar as a gag gift.
