my father

My Dad was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis a few years ago. He has to give himself a shot each morning to prevent/subdue the symptoms.

This was this morning; I met him at a hotel in Columbus yesterday because he was away on business and it just worked out like that.

This is something I plan to continue documenting--it's a huge part of our family now. Doctors visits, hospital visits, doctor bills, hospital bills, medication bills. It's financially tough that there's three of us in college (myself, my sister, and my mother) and on top of that, the treatment for this is incredibly expensive.

keep at it man. That's a really unfortunate situation, but I think it could become a really good project and get you to show some real intimacy because it's your family. It reminds me of Ed Kashi and the sandwich generation
