This girl has got a story. We’ve known Lily for years since we did her sister Sarah Beth’s senior pictures and were lucky enough to have her around during an internship for Grace Christian Academy. In Lily’s own words, her greatest accomplishment so far is her recovery from cancer. Lily battled Leukemia for over two years and is now cancer free! Lily was the 2015 Girl of the Year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society raising over $152,000 for the foundation along with seven other candidates.
I would add an extra accomplishment to her list because Lily’s outlook on life is something we should all strive for. Lily is an eternal optimist, always smiling and never complaining despite her multiple surgeries and extensive physical therapy throughout her recovery. You can see from her smile that she just oozes goodness and sweetness. Lily, you have been and will continue to be an inspiration to many. Come back and hang out at the studio again soon!
