Photographer's Perspective: Leaving a Lasting Impression.

Posted: Updated:

WESLACO- CHANNEL 5's Heart of the Valley series is leaving a lasting impression. Photojournalist, Randy Garcia, edited many of the stories you saw and heard.

The Heart of the Valley series brought awareness and told true stories of the victims who suffered from Diabetes. Garcia's father is a type 2 diabetic.

"I often wonder what is processing in his mind. Is it depression, suicidal thoughts, or the fears of amputation, or is he just not bothered by the fact," Garcia said.

Garcia says he couldn't help but envision his father when hearing the other speak about their own experiences with Diabetes.

"I've gained... knowledge because of Heart of the Valley. It's changed my life as well," Garcia said.
