My favorite picture

Posted by Dipak Basu on May 08, 2011

To start her story, here is one my favorite pictures of our daughter. It says a lot about her character and personality. She was to host a party in New York in early 2008 but it clashed with a chemotherapy appointment. Being Jhumki, she did both!

In the photo she is undergoing a chemo infusion with an icepack on her needle-lacerated arm. There is disco ball above her head, hung by Alexander, and a camera in her lap. She is in stitches (hate the pun) about something funny a party-goer said. Her friends are arrayed around her, laughing. 

Cancer - in the cancer ward - is a million miles away.
