About a year ago, LHS student Ashley Scott learned she had cancer. From the website Hope, Faith & Photos for a Cure we learn more,
Last April of 2010, Ashley injured herself during a softball game and what the doctors thought was to be a sports related injury turned out to be more. She knew something was not right and after further persistence and biopsy, a tumor was found and she was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma Stage 4 Cancer.
Life changed in an instant. It was hard. Hard for her to comprehend and lose many things she loved like softball and her hair.
Photographer Carla Lynn designed Hope, Faith & Photos for a Cure as a fundraiser for Ashley. On Sunday, February 27th from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m., top photographers from across the area are gathering for a photo shoot. Admission is $10 p/person (all going to Ashley Scott) and all proceeds from photos ordered online via Pictage also go to Ashley.
As a community, we need to rally around this fundraising effort. If you have a child, go have their photo made. If you are newly engaged or need a family portrait done, do it here. If you need a professional photo taken, this is a great opportunity. And it’s for a really good cause.
Here’s more information,
When you come to the Marathan Village (the red tall short bldg located at 1305 Clinton Street, Nashville) we will be set up on the 3rd floor and the stairs will be straight across. As you come in- there will be Registration tables set up, where you will pay your admission of $10 a person and also complete a form that asks of your contact info, email address and consent for use of any images for media/web publications.
Here’s a map to Marathan Village via Google Maps (the link takes you to the map where you can zoom in/out):
Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this event. I will try to post more about it as the photo shoot gets closer.
