Honoring a Mother's Memory

A Dozen RosesSiblings Fred Silber and Beeny Finkelstein shared a heartbreaking event in their young lives: the death of their beloved mother, who passed away  from breast cancer when the two were just teens. After ultimately becoming an award-winning photographer and poet, respectively, Mr. Silber and Mrs. Finkelstein chose to honor their mother’s memory through A Dozen Roses, their book of inspirational poetry accompanied by extraordinary photographs of roses— a symbol of comfort, commitment and love.

Proceeds from the book are helping to fund breast cancer treatment and research programs at the University of Maryland Breast Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital Breast Cancer Center. A series of photos from the book is on permanent display at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center and the St. Agnes Hospital Breast Cancer Center.
