Carey Kirkella launched her Sisters Project today, on National Sister's Day, in honor of her sister who passed from breast cancer. The project consists of portraits of sisters where at least one is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer or is a breast cancer survivor; my sister and I are her first subjects! 

Although my sister and I have a large age gap between us, we've become closer during my diagnosis; she's listened to me cry, she stayed with me during chemo, surgeries and beyond, and is now helping me to get my life back. 

“A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves – a special kind of double.” - Toni Morrison
