Portraits Of Boston: 'She Had A Secret'


“We met online.”

“And then we went for a date.”

“It was a good first date, but she had a secret she wasn’t telling me.”

“Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. When we met, I didn’t have a lot of hair and I was wearing a wig.”

“I complimented her hair because it was so perfect, and she didn’t tell me it was a wig. She told me a couple of dates later.”
