Capturing the Moments

Cancer. Horrible and confusing for anyone to go through, especially a child. Helen Jonsen, the head of our sister site Working Mother, knows this all too well. Her daughter, now healthy, was diagnosed with cancer at age 9. But despite the heartache brought on by her daughter's battle, Jonsen knew that capturing the moments -- special and routine -- was important for her child and family. In a recent Working Mother article, Jonsen reveals how she documented this period and stayed positive by taking pictures and keeping a "good moments only" journal with her daughter. The piece puts a wonderful, positive perspective on the way we can deal with the emotional side of this disease.
