Cancer sucks...

More and more I am meeting people that have these incredible life stories, how they made it through a tough time and although it "sucks" they are on a journey.  Despite a tragic life event the journey is not over…it only continues!!

I met Carrie last year when she wanted to document a unique time with her children.  After losing her love & husband Andy, to Colorectal cancer she wanted to freeze a few moments of her and the kids.  Hailey & Dylan are pretty amazing…not only do they love each other but they sure know how to give their mom some extra hugs & kisses when she needs it!

As life seems to present many speedbumps, Carrie still manages to run a successful business, Halo Construction.   Since Andy’s passing she has put a team together for Relay for Life as well as coordinated a golf tournament to benefit the American Cancer Society.   She said the American Cancer Society was absolutely amazing  to them as they went through treatment and battled Andy’s cancer so she wants to give back as much as she possibly can!   This years golf tournament is on April 28th and still has room for sign ups.  Even if you can’t golf or are a lefty like myself it might be worth a shot just to support such a wonderful cause.   They are also looking for sponsors…so if you or anyone you know have interest in sponsoring I say GO FOR IT.

They are selling raffle tickets for the Relay for Life fundraiser now and at the golf tournament…and YOU can win…a photography package…from Arlene Chambers Photography…so buy a ticket and maybe you’ll win and I'll get to meet you.  Either way we all win by supporting such an amazing cause!
