  • By Jeannie Blaylock First Coast News JACKSONVILLE, FL -- How many women feel beautiful while they're fighting cancer? How many men feel good about their looks during a battle with cancer? Some do. Most probably don't. But professional photographer Marie Moran says the journey through cancer is worth documenting. She is offering to take professional portraits of anyone fighting any type of cancer--for free. Marie is dealing with cancer herself. Her breast cancer has spread. But she's not getting sucked under. Instead, she's fired up about her idea to give people a special gift. Some of her photos are wild, some conservative. Whatever a cancer patient wants, she honors. People can choose to pose with their spouses, as well. Marie has a series of photos showing her journey. Some are definitely on the zany side. Zany, but fun. She jokes about how it all started. She says, "I was walking around with no make-up, no hair--no nothing." Her son told her she looked like Uncle Fester from the old TV show, "Addams Family." She says, "I had to do something to look better." Marie let her children decorate her head, bald from chemotherapy. She even posed with a neon-pink mohawk.
