Good morning! It is with …
Good morning!

It is with great excitement that I am writing you with a update. The camera and light are in, and we had our first mini shoot on Valentines Day. It was a blast! Cancer patients and their loved ones came to take photos together. I heard many stories about how couples meet and about their journey with cancer. It was amazing one couple had talked about how they have been together for over 60 years. In addition to many amazing stories, I heard many comments of gratitude and the patients and their loved ones wanted me to pass along the comments to thank you. They said many things like "What a great thing you are doing!" "I can't wait to send this to my spouse. They are going to cherish this." "Thank you so much for being here to listen and document my story." This event was made possible by you, and I can't thank you enough.

Also, I am excited to announce that in addition to photos, we will also be offering the opportunity to offer legacy videos where individuals can document memories, life lessons, and teachings. This will be an amazing addition to help those who would like to leave memories behind for their loved ones in the event that they pass away, and also is a beautiful gift to give those whom are grieving from losing a loved one.

I look forward to sharing future updates with you, but just wanted to share my excitement of the wonderful things that you help to make happen!

Love Always,
Beth

“No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.”

― Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

Thank you so much for pushing to make an impact. I can tell you for certain that this gift and the support that you have given will truly make an impact on many Cancer paitents and their loved ones. In the spirit of the holidays, I love to take this moment to look back on the many blessings I have, and you all are truly one of them. Because of you, I have had the pleasure of ordering the camera and lens today for the photography studio. We did it!!!

What will happen next... I have a few more items to order (eg. a light, uv lens, etc.). Once I get these supplies, I will work with a professional photographer to see how to best set up the supplies in different areas of the hospital (eg. patients rooms, offices, etc). Then, the studio will be launched. I will be giving the individuals a DVD with all their images on for now. However, I will continue to attempt to raise money and write grants to be able to give patients a quality print of their images and to attempt to get a laptop that I can bring to patients rooms to alter their image in photoshop. I can't wait to keep you updated along the way!


Thank you so much for your support, donation, and/or being a positive light in my life. I truly feel thankful to be blessed to have such amazing individuals in my life! That being said, thank you for being you!

Sincerely,
