Women's Lung Cancer Awareness Photo Shoot 2014
May 4, 2014
Timeless Cafe and Bakery, Waterloo
On May 4th, 2014, Krista Ward and Sturt Carter (of Light Table Photography) hosted a photo shoot to bring awareness to the prevalence of lung cancer amongst non-smoking women. This event was held in honour and support of Krista's mother Jean Ward, who was diagnosed with Lung Cancer five years ago. From Krista:
"She was diagnosed in November and we were given the impression that we would be celebrating our last Christmas with her. She has completely defied the odds and continues to fight. She just started another round of tough chemo last week and is struggling with it but is determined."
For a donation, mothers and daughters received a portrait session and studio quality images, all in time for Mothers Day. All together, the event raised $1400!
Please check out the touching photos in the gallery below. They're really touching, and we couldn't be more thankful for Krista and Sturt's beautiful, hard work. We're also rooting for Jean!
