I was so inspired by the way the cancer survivors are portrayed. They aren't the victims of cancer, they're the victors over cancer. They have triumped because of the incredible people who have stood behind them and supported them through a terrible time. They won.
My project "Onward" started with breast cancer survivors. . . then quickly morphed into including all kinds of cancers since I had so many people interested in particpating. With participants as young as 10 months old, I've realized that cancer really doesn't care. It has no compassion and has no preference. We are the ones that get to make the decision to be strong and stand and fight-- to win.
Do you know someone who has battled cancer, and won? Please let me know, we would love to give them a 100% free photoshoot. We will portray the survivor in a way that screams, "CANCER SUCKS, and I'M BEATING IT." You will have no obligation to purchase prints, but the option is there if you'd like. Profits from print purchase will go to the cancer foundation of your choice. Please contact Brianna at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 270/668/2317 if you or a friend is interested in being photographed.
The idea of this is to not only have individual photoshoots, but to get many cancer survivors together for one picture- with their support systems behind them. This photo will be sold to businesses, doctor's offices, etc... any place that is willing to display survivors that have decided to move "ONWARD." (Profits will all be donated to cancer foundations and research.)
This can be a very powerful project... please help us to work together and display the power of moving "Onward..."
-Fellow photographers: are you interested in helping? Please contact me if you're interested in donating a portion of your profits to this cause.-
