My uncle was admitted to hospital. He had cancer about a month ago, removed half of his tongue, and since then has had some complications. Currently he has a tumor on his liver and a tumor on his kidney. He also is diabetic.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.
