"Mom's Hike"

Photography, 2017

 

"In October of 2016, I found out that I had Stage IV Endometriosis and I underwent a radical hysterectomy less than two weeks later. Two months later, my mom died. My pain therapy and my mental health therapy at the time was hiking. So, as wounds healed; both physically and emotionally, we were able to lay my mom to rest on a beautiful summit near our home. It was a stunning sunrise in her favorite colors. The wind was warm, the mountains hidden in a blanket of fog and one of my favorite photos ever."

 
Each month we feature a work of endo-related art from our community. Have art you would like to submit for The Blossom? Email generaladmin@endofound.org
