In our family, we speak of B.C. and A.D. B.C. = Before cancer. A.D. = After Diagnosis. This photo is B.C., but only slightly. Jeanette took this photo the afternoon before Jordan went in for a biopsy – on Thursday, October 7th, 2004. It was the day before we learned that Jordan had cancer. We half-suspected this was the case, which is why Jeanette took Jordan out to play. In my writing these past few weeks I’ve been tracing history. This photo is an important memento for our family. It’s not an end. It’s a beginning.
