Howie and Laurel found out that they had cancer at the same time.

Finding out that your father or mother has cancer is a hard thing to deal with. When both of Nancy Borowick’s parents told her that they both had cancer—¦ we can’t imagine how devastating that news would be. But instead of letting cancer tear their family apart from the inside-out, the Borowicks bonded together. Husband, wife and daughter grew together as they fought cancer and Nancy chronicled the whole thing with these incredible photographs.

The couple had been married for 34 years.

Despite the unfathomable trials, Nancy’s parents were both able to walk their daughter down the aisle, who moved up the date of her wedding when she realized the fight her parents would be facing. They found strength together and witnessed their daughter’s most special moment.

After a long and arduous journey, Howie lost his life to the pancreatic cancer, but not before spending wonderful months with his wife and three children who will always have this touching photos to remember him by.

His son-in-law Paul Flach is running the Berlin Marathon to raise money for the Institute of Cancer Research in his memory, and also in memory of his own father, Adrian. Donations can be made at Just Giving.
