OK, so I want to brag a little. And I can tie this to my cc dx. This really helps me get through this rough 1st round of chemo.

My oldest son has been in marketing for a major Los Angeles based sports team for quite a while (even left his high paying job to pursue this one as sports is one of his passions). Other of his passions are photography, art and writing (which he has always been great at but, a bit afraid to pursue). Well, he decided to help out mom with some of the costs of chemo by taking a couple of side jobs (I've always taken care of everyone else so this one is difficult for me but, something good has come of my dx). My son has now become an official professional photographer and writer as he just recently had 2 sports articles published and some of his sports photography. All just this week. I am so proud of him!

The only problem is when I see your picture here I can't believe you could have a kid out of grade school! Congratulations, this is wonderful! If something good can come out cancer, that is great. You have raised a wonderful son who wants to help you with chemo costs - not every son would do that! Kudos to you! (+ him too!)

That is awesome, I am so happy for you and very proud of your son. Does he just cover certain sports or all of them? Professional sports or what?

He's been working with a basketball team and that is his favorite sport but, he is covering all professional sports. His 2 articles, one was on Tim Lincecum and the other on Devin Hester (the teams wanted to use their own photofiles for the articles so he didn't get to use his own for those articles) and his photography was used for an article covering a 16 year old professional major league gamer. He's had some of his photography and videos used by skateboard shops before but, now he is getting some professional attention. :)

I'm feeling proud just reading this...to have your stuff published and out there and pics to boot. Writing is a special talent and am just so happy for your son that he can live out his dream - and even be paid to do it:)

He must be built out of solid character and was demonstrated by what he did for you during treatment. Always great to read stories of loving families:)

Nice story!

Thanks so much for the great compliment for my son. He's always been such a good kid that when he was younger I used to tell my friends "sssssh, he was switched at birth and I'm not giving him back!"

It's been a very rough year for the family and to have something so great to celebrate feels so good. I just wanted to share some good news as I've been a bit whinny lately.

That is really something to be so proud of. You have every right to toot your horn on this one. Love it when our kids get a break and things go their way.

That's so great! No wonder you're proud of him! He's good at what he does, and he's good to his mom. Sounds like a wonderful son to me!
