When Kristine, one of my class of 2018 Senior Models approached me last month to see if we could do something a little extra special to support a family member of hers battling Breast Cancer, I was totally on board. After all, it wasn’t all that long ago where a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Though my friend won the battle, I understand that many do not and families are devastated as a result.
With October upon us, aka Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Kristine wanted to dye her hair pink to rally with those who are fighting. Jordan and Nyla decided to join in. As we photographed we remembered those who fight with this cancer every day.
No woman is immune to this cancer. In fact, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in her lifetime. And even more sobering, a woman dies every 13 minutes from Breast Cancer. Early detection is the key so if you are a woman reading this, go to this link to get more information and to schedule a mammogram.
