Howie and Laurel Borowick embrace in the bedroom of their home. In their thirty-four year marriage, they never could have imagined being diagnosed with stage-4 cancer at the same time. Chappaqua, New York. March 2013.

We are beyond honored to feature our beautiful friend and Touch A Life’s favorite photographer, Nancy Borowick, on our blog today. Nancy has traveled to Ghana to document the work going on at the Care Center more times than we can count, and we are forever grateful to her for capturing the most perfect images of our children, staff, volunteers, and property. Within the last two years, Nancy lost both of her parents to cancer. Today she is sharing her powerful story with us, providing us with so much wisdom and inspiration.   We love you, Nancy—thank you for opening your heart to us and encouraging and inspiring us more than you could ever know.

Today we are featuring Amy Munoz, whose story is so powerful that we guarantee you will want to hunker down in front of your computer with a latte or a glass of wine and read her piece from start to finish (and then maybe start all over again). Amy and her husband, Alex, live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and they have a one-and-a-half year old daughter named Kiera. In 2013 they lost their daughter, Kaitlyn, when Amy was 39.5 weeks pregnant; in fact, they didn’t find out that their daughter was gone until they went to the hospital for their scheduled C-section. Though Amy works full time for Biosense Webster as a Clinical Account Specialist, she is passionate about her work with Hope Mommies, an organization that she serves in many ways, including by being the President of the non-profit’s Dallas Chapter. Read on to learn more about Amy, Kaitlyn, and what this mom is doing to honor her beautiful daughter’s legacy.   Thank you for joining us, Amy! We are so grateful that you are willing to share your story with our readers. Can you tell us about your sweet daughter Kaitlyn? We were thrilled to find out […]
