giving back is very important to me. and being able to give the gift of photography makes my heart sing. i so wanted to do some work for brent’s place this spring but was too sick with a reduced immunity myself that i wasn’t able. so i was so excited to get the chance to spend some time here and meet a couple of amazing families.
There is a place where families are offered hope and healing when facing the most demanding time of their lives. There is a place where kids being treated for life threatening cancer can still be kids. This place is Brent’s Place.
Since its inception, Brent’s Place has remained the only Children’s Hospital Colorado approved “Safe-Clean” housing facility for immune compromised patients and their families, providing a living environment that is essential to healing and recovery. Conveniently located near the Anschutz Medical Campus, Brent’s Place is designed to offer families “Safe-Clean” individualized housing in an environment virtually free from dander, dust, mold and other infectious agents.
Brent’s Place, a program and facility created by the Brent Eley Foundation, bridges the gap between the hospital and going home.
a bright light surrounded this young man and his family and i was quite affected by it. energy, chemistry, life force– i felt it all in a rush of emotions when this family and i crossed paths. this was their second round as guests at Brent’s place and Izaac and his family (and myself as well) felt his fate was changing for the better.
a few days after these photos were taken his scan came back clean–no new cancer!
so his future is bright and his journey continues.
i am inspired to ‘see and feel’ such love with via my camera and my lens. and i am thrilled (honored and humbled) to meet fellow warriors in this battle against cancer.
