One Day at a Time

This is my mom, she was just diagnosed with breast cancer this year. After a few treatments she started losing her hair. My dad helped her shave the rest of it off on Mother's Day. My mom asked me if I would take a couple photos for her, so I set up a little backdrop in her bedroom by the window, we locked the bedroom door so my sister's 6 year old daughter wouldn't walk in and be startled to see her grandma bald, and we took a few photos.
