Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Dale McGinnis, standing in for his cancer-stricken wife, helps daughter Viola, 10, with the before-school hairbrushing job. Ready to pass inspection are, left to right, Arthell, 8, Benny, 7, Jessie Inez, 5 (front row), and Carolyn Joyce, 14, Lavona, 9, Naomi, 11, and Beatrice, 16. While their mother battles advanced breast cancer, the kids have missed very little school at Crooked Oak, and Mr. McGinnis, a 47-year-old construction worker, quit work to take over household chores and raising kids."
