Derek is a member of the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group. His wife was pregnant while having pain in her maxilla or upper jaw. Eventually, she was diagnosed with bone cancer, but the surgery required the removal of bone altering her face dramatically. When I asked Derek if he can still see her beauty, he wrote this back to me:
“My wife is the sexiest woman I have ever met. Missing pieces is like art; if you see it from the right angle, all you see is beauty. Not all of us see art the same way.”
Don’t you love it? Spoken by a soldier, Derek is admirable on more than one front!
