{The Gold Hope Project} | Chester County Child Photographer


As I posted on my Facebook page earlier this week, I was so happy to learn that I was accepted as a photographer for The Gold Hope Project.  I recently heard about this project and was so thrilled to learn that they were accepting applications.  I’ve been looking for a way to give back with my photography and this cause truly spoke to me.  There is something so innocent about children and it breaks my heart to know that there are so many children out there battling cancer.  Being a mother of two, I can’t imagine what that must be like for both the child as well as the family!   Unfortunately, cancer has touched my life….in many ways….as I’m sure it has for many of you.  So needless to say, I was excited and honored when I received my email stating that I was a Gold Hope Project photographer!  Being a part of this organization allows me a way to stand alongside these innocent children and fight cancer with them.  Please read below to learn more about this amazing organization!

Taken from The Gold Hope Project Mission page:

The  Gold Hope Project is organized exclusively for charitable and   educational purposes. The Gold Hope Project is a group of International   photographers that have come together to photograph families completely   free, bring about awareness, raise funds for Pediatric Oncology  Research  and treatment. 

These purposes include:

* Photographing families of children 21 and under, who lost their battles and share their stories.
* Educating communities in which we live about Pediatric Cancer
* Support, Encourage and raise funds for Pediatric Cancer Research
* Resources for families who are facing a recent diagnosis
* Support community of other families who are facing similar Cancer diagnosis
*   To photograph any child 21 and under with a current or past cancer   diagnosis. They can be at any stages of treatment of be a childhood   survivor.

More  precious than the gold that represents them,  children are our future. This year alone, approximately 13,500  parents will have to listen to a doctor tell them, “Your child has  cancer.”  Can you imagine?
