Li and Ali November 2003

This photo was taken at Ali's sister's home in November 2003. Ali was finished with all treatments and her hair had started to grow back. I was amazed at how Ali's sister, Mom, aunt, cousins, and friends circled around her when she was ill. They were just there or a phone call away. I'm not certain that a ring of support that strong would pop up for a guy in a similar situation. I've struggled with posting this photo. Between Ali and my parents, this was a rough time. I guess not all great photos can be happy. The strength of the bonds behind this picture are amazing.
