FACES OF CHILDHOOD CANCER
In 2016 my youngest son was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) FLT3 mutation. We spent about two years living in hospitals during his treatments. While we were there, I started drawing the nurses and doctors that did so much for us. I then started drawing portraits of other kids going through treatment. The families really enjoyed the portraits which led me to my project, The Faces of Childhood Cancer. I asked moms of children with cancer if I could do a portrait of their child with the hope to host a showing and raise money for research. Parents were excited, and I have well over 100 photos that I am currently working on. I want to honor the children that died the current fighters and the survivors by showing how much they have gone through.
