As a photographer it’s hard never have pictures of yourself, but in quarantine it’s hard to take pictures of other people. Taking pictures of myself is something I’m not totally comfortable doing but it’s been a fun challenge for me during this time of isolation.

Two years ago today, my father pastorrickdelrio was discharged from nyulangone after ten days recovering from aggressive cancer surgery. He had previously been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic thyroid cancer from his work at Ground Zero after 9/11. The vile cancer had spread throughout his chest and rib cage. The procedure left him without a thyroid, part of a lung, and most of three ribs; and placed a gauze mesh to patch a hole in his ribcage the size of a fist. The doctors said the surgery went well, but only time would tell for sure. Today, he called me about the renovations he's doing at agminnyc's property upstate during the quarantine. Approximately eight months ago, the doctors pronounced him cancer free. Thank you nelarte for the cherished art from those scary days, and all who prayed with us. #KindnessBeatsTheVirus
