I. am. so. excited! I just got the acceptance email today, letting me know that I was selected to be a participating photographer in The Gold Hope Project! I applied on February 15 and was anxiously awaiting the news. What is The Gold Hope Project? It is an organization of photographers who offer free photography sessions and photos to families who have a child diagnosed with pediatric cancer. From their website:
More precious than the gold that represents them, children are our future. There are twelve major types of childhood cancers. From there, they are broken down into three groups.
Lymphomas (cancer of the immune system)
Solid tumors (cancer in bones, organs, or tissue)The Gold Hope Project is a group of photographers that have come together to capture the moments that these families holds so dear to their heart. Some of us have been touched by the presence of cancer, and some have not, but we have all been given a gift that we would like to share.
