Since I started my project Underwater Healer About Face I’ve been blessed to work with 23 cancer and trauma survivors. For over two years I’ve been amazed by watching their transformations – fears being overcome, emotional scars being healed and a renewed beginning for their lives moving forward. It’s a magical time spent with these fighters and survivors and I cherish every bit of it.
I would love to keep working on this project because underwater portrait is very effective for cancer survivors. They feel freedom and it gives them courage to challenge themselves to try new things. There is a waiting list of survivors who would like to experience the underwater portrait session just like everybody here and I need your help! Every single underwater portrait session for cancer and trauma survivors is FREE! In order to continue to work with survivors on the waiting list I rely on all you wonderful supporters. There are three ways you can make a difference in a survivors life with Underwater Healer:
2.) Schedule a shoot for yourself! Do you have a fear of water? Stress due to work? Or are you a fan of my work and want your own underwater portrait shoot? I would love to work with you as well and give you an experience of a lifetime. Please reach out to me and I’m happy to set up a location (within the San Francisco Bay Area). You can get more questions answered about what to expect at a shoot here.
3.) Sponsor a shoot for a cancer or trauma survivor! It costs $1,200 to sponsor five About Face underwater photography survivor shoots in California and three outside of the state. This covers my airfare, lodging, meals, pool rental and the shoot itself.
I’m excited to continue Underwater Healer for a third year and am so thankful to all my family, friends and supporters who have been a large part of it’s success. I couldn’t have done it without you. Please consider supporting my project and help make a difference in a cancer survivors life.
