Think Pink…

March 12, 2008

Think Pink Participating Photographer Banner

Well, with it being Womens History month and all (yes, it’s March already), I decided its a good opportunity to announce that I am a partner photographer (one of only 3 in the local area!) with “Think Pink”!!!

So… what is Think Pink?!

Think Pink is a charitable organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families who have been touched by breast cancer. From the THINK PINK website itself:

Think Pink Session
Through our photographer network, we are helping breast cancer survivors and their supporters to celebrate life with charitable photography sessions.

Any individual that has been diagnosed with breast cancer or completed treatment within the past 12 months qualifies for a Think Pink Session. Sessions are available to document the fight before or during treatment or to celebrate the victory when treatment is completed.

Clients will receive a complimentary session, (20) small prints, and a discount off additional print orders.

This is really an awesome program and I am very excited to be a part of it! I’ve been involved in helping the American Cancer Society for the past few years, particularly with their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk (MSABC) held each October.

So if you know someone who has been touched by breast cancer, please do let them know about this wonderful program! Hopefully it will give families and individuals something to really hold onto and be proud of.

And of course, my little personal “factoid”: Did you know that breastfeeding is one of the single most important things you can do in your lifetime to reduce your risk of breast cancer, that will have the MOST significant impact on reducing your risk of breast cancer… not to mention various other cancers & diseases!? And if you breastfeed your daughter, you also reduce her risk! Breastfeed to help cut your risk of cancer in HALF! (And a special hello to my fellow LLL‘ers!)
