For Him

12 years ago my father was diagnosed with his first brain tumor. He underwent surgery, and since then has had two more surgeries to remove two additional growths. This piece is the story of that struggle for him, for my family, and specifically myself. Learning to deal with the pain of his changing personality, his limitations, and overall the incredible strength in the love and marriage of him and my mother, as well as our family unit. Each dancer represents an individual deeply effected, my father, my mother, my sister, her husband, myself, and my grandmother- who unfortunately passed away just prior to his 3rd surgery. This is the story of a families strength through challenges....and the meaning of true unconditional love. These are young, non-professional dancers with quirks and imperfections. That is part of why I love it so much. I hope you enjoy.
