Cancer. It is one of those horrible diseases that has likely affected us all in one way or another. It doesn’t differentiate between young and old, and is not to be taken lightly. After losing my amazing uncle to cancer years ago it was heartbreaking to get the call that one of my very best friends was now facing a diagnosis of malignant melanoma. Thankfully, my dear friend is now cancer free and decided to fight back in a huge way. This is how Not Just Skin Deep began and when she started telling me all the details I knew right away it would be a huge success.
The goal was to raise $10,000 in one day for the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund. There were over 20 photographers in Southwestern Ontario and British Columbia volunteering their time and talent to support the NJSD inititive on May 26th and the event was a huge success. It is with great pride that we can say the goal was achieved.
For anyone who isn’t aware, The David Cornfield Melanoma Fund (DCMF) is a local organization that funds programs to raise awareness as well as melanoma research. DCMF’s immediate goal is to develop and distribute educational materials to young people and their caregivers to teach about the importance of prevention and early detection. Their ultimate goal is to find a cure.”
Hat’s off to my beautiful, amazing, talented, generous, and loving friend Kelly for her work in making this day such a success. You did it girl!
