Below are some pictures from that night's festivities.
Well, it wasn't a few short weeks later that my mother in law was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and our family found ourselves in a very scary place as we learned more about her cancer, course of treatment, and chance of survival. You see...both of her parents had passed away from different forms of cancer when my husband was very young, so it was hard to keep our minds from jumping to the worst case scenario. But praise the Lord, since her surgery all reports seem to show that the cancer was removed 100% and so far no new cancer growth has formed.
Well, fast forward another month or so and we have now discovered that one of the people who actually participated on our team in Relay for Life has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She's also had surgery recently and from what I have heard seems to be recovering as well as can be expected. I have not yet heard the latest on whether they were able to remove all the cancer so that still remains a prayer request of mine.
SO...why do I share these stories with you today? Well, I have recently signed up with Images for a Cure to join other photographers nationwide to donate all session fees for one day to The Breast Cancer Research Fund®.
Here are the details if you're interested in booking a session:
Date: Sunday, October 11, 2009
Location: Historic Downtown Square or Johnson Park & Nature Trail in Collierville, Tennessee
Time: 30-45 minute Mini Sessions from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Bonus: Free high-res download of your favorite image! And 10% off all prints and photo products.
PLEASE NOTE: 100% of your session fee will go to The Breast Cancer Research Fund®.
So here is how it will work. Contact me to get your session set up and I will send you instructions on how to donate your session fee. Then we'll nail down your time and location. You can also go HERE to start the process as well as make a donation just because!
P.S. Did I mention that the photographers participating are being given access to the Images for a Cure Blog so we can post sneak peeks there from our sessions. You could be famous!
Anyways, please do let me know soon if you might be interested in scheduling a session so we can get the ball rolling and you on the calendar before the sessions fill up. Which I hope they do for this wonderful cause! Also, if you have another (close by) location in mind, do let me know...we might be able to work it out if we schedule you at the beginning or end of the afternoon.
Thanks, and God bless! :)
