When I was 17, I lost my dad to colon cancer. That's not exactly how a girl wants to spend her Senior year of high school.
I hate that he never met my husband or that my children will never know their grandpa. But there's nothing I can do to change that.
There is, however, something I can do to help prevent that from happening to others.
In honor of my father, I'm hosting Hope For A Cure Mini Sessions. 100% of sitting fees will be going to area Relay For Life events. There's a special invitation for cancer survivors in that I'll be covering the $25 sitting fee. It's not "free", because I still want the money to go to local cancer support, but it's no cost to survivors.
Like Miss Emily. She's a survivor of epic proportions. No one should ever have to go through what she had to go through.
At the innocent age of seven, she mustered everything she had in her & kicked cancer in the gut. Yay Emily!! And, thanks girlie, for being my amazing model. ;-)
If you have been affected by cancer through a loved one, please feel free to bring items or photos of those that you may have lost to cancer. Being able to honor your loved ones this way may help others to hold onto their loved ones a little longer.
Mini Sessions are $25 for around 20 minutes of shooting, and you'll end
up with 10-15 on-line proofs. There are no paper proofs for Mini
Sessions. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. You can email me at wischdesigns (at) rainbowtel (dot) net, message via the WischDesigns Facebook page, or call or text at 785-548-5735.
I sit in my little house in the corner of my little state. I choose the job I want to work at and the church I want to pray at. I'm free to go to the doctor that I prefer. And sometimes I take all of that for granted. But after today, I realize how much is sacrificed and how grateful am I.
Meet Lt. Col. Valieant. He's retiring from the Army. Interestingly enough, he was born at Fort Leavenworth. So, he technically began and ended his Army career in the same place. :)
Seeing his friends and family and watching everyone interact made me realize just how many sacrifices are made.
He comes by it naturally. His father and grandfather also served in the Army. Isn't that a great set of photos?!
So, thank you to Lt. Col. Valieant. Thank you to his friends, parents, and his wife and children.
