This beautiful, successful woman has been my best friend for close to 50 YEARS. We grew up together yet we ended up living on different coasts of the US. We have remained best friends because we share those most important elements in life; childhood, memories, family, early friendships, first jobs together, obtaining our social security numbers at the same time, etc. Last year I flew to the east coast and dropped by to see her and I was taken aback by her condition. No one informed me that she had become ill. After a year of all kinds of tests, it was finally discovered about 3 months ago that she has huge amounts of poison in her system. I went to see her again and to stay with her this past week, only to find that her conditon had worsened which saddens me to the core. I spent several days photographing her and helping her to the various doctor's offices for treatments. She cannot stand or walk on her own, can hardly speak, she doesn't sleep and she stares off in space, yet her mind is keen. I feel helpless and this is my way to keep her out in front with hopes of a recovery. I pray for her every day. I love you girl.
