Transgender student battles breast cancer in midst of studies

THE FAMILY of three with a lot to pray for lately is praying tonight for the tacos before them.

Mitchell holds his two children’s hands as he bows his head, his short, brown, spiked hair like a dorsal fin pointing down the length of the table. On his right is 11-year-old Lee, gap-toothed and chatty. On his left is nine-year-old Maryrose, whose wispy, blond hair looks almost white. Mitchell thanks God for these tacos, and they all smile and say in unison, “Amen.”
