I am: a Metavivor

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

My family's cancer story goes back two generations. My grandmother had metastatic breast cancer, while my mom suffered from lymphoma and lung cancer.  Both died without a cure.

You can imagine that this would be incredibly impacting on my life. It was a huge part of my desire to live the life I was given with fervor... with boldness. Taking in all of the details around me and not rushing my experiences; all of which you can hopefully see in my photography.

I am proud to be a part of the Metavivor event; a project that showcases the lives of amazing women who are in the battles of their lives. They, too, are living with a fervor... a boldness. And I'm honored to be able to showcase their stories in pictures.
