unless asked, i don’t really talk about it with anyone.
best. slideshow. ever.
Liam, I have no words.
This is beyond moving, and yes, Your Mom will be around a very long time.
Thanks so much Liam. I wish I was there to return the 1,000 perfect hugs I've gotten from Judy over the years.
That was the most moving slideshow I have ever seen. Judy you are absolutely AMAZING both inside and out. It's beautiful,strong women like yourself that make being a nurse worth every moment;) Joann
Liam, that is the most wonderful tribute. You captured it all…… I could feel it all. I had to watch it twice….. The second time I could see the pictures more clearly. I know you didn't do it for me……but THANK YOU! Talk about it or not, I HEARD you. xo
That's my Baby Sister. My true Soul Sister. My "twin". My hero. We shared texts today during chemo, from Red Deer to Halifax and back, from early morning. I wept tears of profound love and of jubilant joy at the mountain she has climbed. I was privileged to be there to share some of the climb. It's not sexy.
Liam, you are a gift – to your Mom (because she tells me so), and to those whose lives you touch in such meaningful ways. Like this. I truly know how much courage it took for you to shoot this today, to capture the profile in courage that you call "Mom". God bless you, my darling. God bless you.
How would I describe the impact of this magnificent tribute? This is POWERFUL. Beautiful. Honest. Raw. Poignant. Inspiring. Captivating. Provocative. Comforting. Victorious. Celebratory. Look at the gentle caring of those dear nurses as they tend to this wonderful woman. It's my sister Judy showing the world how to "do life". Do you realize how much your own precious heart shows through the lens. I love her. I love you. I thank you. From the bottom of my heart, dear Leo. What else can I say…..
What a perfect way for you to capture this moment in both your lives. You are God's gift to one another. Live, love, laugh and embrace every moment given to you. With love for both of you….Allyson
Thats really powerful… and empowering! Way to own it, Liam's mum!
Liam, such a beautiful slideshow about a harsh and hard experience… wow is all I can really say
your mom is beautiful. and this slideshow is gorgeous.
Beautiful slideshow, very moving. I wish you and your mother well.
Beautiful, Liam, really beautiful….
"A picture is worth a thousand words", your slideshow tells a story of love, fear, strength beyond strength, medicine, media,courage, and the most of all..the power of love and support.
I have also climbed this climb with my Mum and though the thought of the illness stills terrifies me, the hours, days spent sitting by her side during chemo are moments I will cherish for life.
Thank you for reminding me to hug the ones I love and forgive the ones I do not. Your Mum is a strong, strong woman and your pictures portray this beautifully.
If we all had an ounce of that strength we would be mighty people!!
A picture's worth a thousand words, a slideshow leaves me speechless.

You're mother is a brave soul. This was very good of you..
Hi there, I just came across your blog and enjoyed reading your posts. This particular post though, made me stop and want to comment. Our family has gone through this and like you, I never talk about it. Kuddos to you for documenting the day and I wish your mom many more years of good health.
I haven't seen the slideshow yet, and I was aware you had an ill family member. You are an awesome person. This blog and the atttitude towards the whole thing is truly and inspiration. Thanks!
