Photographs To Inspire Hope

A hand written sign to encourage those attending and taking part in the 2011 Relay for Life event, which raises funds and awareness about Cancer.


Photographing an event can help those who participate and want a memory or record, those unable to attend, and those who can relate to the event on many levels.  The photograph above is a sign that was created and used in 2011 for Relay for Life.  I am using this image and many other images taken of signs to help raise funds for Relay for Life this year.  I volunteered and walked several hours at this event last year.

One of my friends at church had lost her life to Cancer a few weeks before the relay, which she had planned on walking.  I have also lost family to Cancer and have a parent who is a survivor of this horrible disease.  Please take some time to visit my website ( ) and purchase one of the images in the gallery titled “Images of Hope.”  I will donate 50% of all sales from the images in that gallery to Relay for Life.  If you are not able to purchase an image, please locate the Relay for Life event near you and volunteer, walk, run, donate, or just cheer on those who are raising funds and awareness for Cancer.  Thank you.
