St Baldricks Fundraiser for Pediatric Cancer

This is Spencer. And I am in awe of this boy.
Well, actually, I am in awe of his entire family.

denver childrens portrait photographyI shot this portrait a year and a half ago, during a very special session with his family. Spencer’s younger sister Tuesday, at 18 months old, had been diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer.  (you can see the blog post HERE) And a few short months later, in January 2009, 2-year-old Tuesday passed away,  survived by her parents, her two brothers, and her twin sister.  And her extended family. And the countless lives she touched.

So it is in his sister’s honor that her brother Spencer, along with several of his classmates and many others within the community, will be participating in the upcoming St Baldrick’s charity event to be held at the Douglas County Fairgrounds this Friday, March 19th. They have gathered sponsors and will be getting their heads shaved to promote awareness and raise money for pediatric cancer research. For anyone interested in sponsoring Team Tuesday – either by donation or by volunteering to get your head shaved :) – click here to visit the St Baldrick’s website. Or if you’d like further information feel free to contact me. I will be on hand documenting the event and I’d love to see you there.

And. If you know of a family who is facing similar circumstances. Or even someone who has been putting off getting a family portrait. Please have them call me.
