Some of you may remember a photo series I did 2 years ago documenting the mighty Cara Paccio Green on the day she shaved her head before chemo could take her hair.
Cara has been cancer free for the past 2 years, but recently received some very bad news.
She went to the doctor with what she thought was a cold and instead found that her cancer has returned with a vengeance. She is stage 4 with metastatic breast cancer, that also spread to her femurs, hips, pelvis, spine, ribs, and neck. This is a spot on her liver and in her left lung. She has been told that it is treatable, but not curable. She attempted to start chemotherapy again, but was met with some very bad reactions that wound her up in the hospital for 12 days. She continues to fight and keep a positive attitude and her usual uplifted temperament.
Cara and her husband Matt have 2 small boys (ages 3 & 6). She is an amazing wife, sister, aunt and mother. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate motherhood than to do a raffle for a special photo session in her honor with ALL of the proceeds going to Cara’s family as they incur some huge expenses associated with her illness and treatment. Here’s how it works:
Each entry is $10 with discounts for multiple entries. You can donate/enter below until Monday at 8pm. At that time I will randomly draw 1 winner from all the entries to receive:
An all inclusive photo session for up to 8 people anywhere within 250 miles of Binghamton, NY. The package includes up to 2 hours of photography, all of the edited digital images with print release and a custom photo locket with 2 of your favorite images in it. This package is worth $850.
