Greenville South Carolina baby & kids photography:
I was so very happy to create these images for Kennedy and her family!!! While all children are special, I wanted to let you hear Kennedy’s story from her mother’s perspective…
“On July 20, 2010 at just over two weeks of age, an abnormal ping pong ball sized mass was found on our daughter Kennedy’s left thigh. After x-ray, ultra sound, surgical biopsy, CT scan, MRI and about a million tears it was determined that our beautiful baby girl had Infantile Fibrosarcoma, a rare cancer which occurs in soft tissue and area surrounding bone. At 2 months old our little fighter began chemotherapy. After 6 weeks of treatment the chemo was determined to be a success as it shrunk her tumor 2 cm and was ready to be removed. On November 18, 2010 Kennedy under went a 4 hour surgery to remove her tumor along with 1/4 of the quad muscle on her left thigh. It was unsure how Kennedy would recover and develop after her surgery missing such a large piece of her quad. For months we watched her with bated breath as she hit her mile stones. As time went on it became increasingly apparent that Kennedy is as determined as she is strong, crawling at 7 months and shocking us all by walking at 11 months old. Cancer or no cancer nothing is holding this girl back.”
It was nice to meet Kennedy and her family! She was such a pleasant little baby to work with; lots of smiles, and very much a model already : ) – She is turning 1 next week!
