      Extra Info: This is my son, Liam 21 years old. He has been fighting cancer for past year (T-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma). Happy to say this past fall he was declared in remission. He went through 6 months heavy Chemo treatment, and then 2 years of lighter chemo to come. His hair has grown back, come in quite curly.

Managed to get him to pose for couple pictures.

    Thank you everyone for the great comments of encouragement. Liam is doing real well, he has maybe year and half of maintenance chemo to go and of course lots of pills. We need as parents just need to help him keep on track, he's young and most important things for him in life is to party.

Thank you for the votes and warm comments.

    The two portraits in this set are among the best shots. I liked this one from the first, with its fine detail, lighting, and expression. Even before reading the back story. Happy to hear that things have worked out well.

    This is a beautiful portrait, not only a handsome subject, but beautifully lit and composed. Love the hat!
I can only imagine what it is like for cancer to threaten your loved one. (I have two 21 year old grandsons.) Best wishes for his ongoing health. May the remission be permanent.
In my faves.

    This nearly brought me to tears. I can't imagine anything more difficult that to see your child fight such a terrible illness. All my thoughts are with you. Stay strong, beautiful young man.
