Mom, 27 & 62

I'd like to show my support on International Women's Day by celebrating Suhasini John, my Mom. On the left is a photo of her when she was 27. On the right is a recreation of the photo by me, taken this past January, at age 62. This past holiday season, she found out that she has breast cancer and immediately began treatment to fight it from spreading. She asked me to take this photo before starting chemotherapy. My mom is and always has been the most beautiful and powerful woman on earth. Two months into intense treatment and she continues to be just as stunning and strong! During this difficult, and uncertain battle, she is the one showing us how to make it through with strength and grace. Love you Mumma! Ummas!
