Please join me this Sunday from 12-4pm at downtown Portland’s World Trade Center 121 SW Salmon Street as we unveil the 2010 Children’s Cancer Association Hero Wall. The Hero Wall is comprised of 25 portraits of children and teens who have made an impact within our community despite facing severe medical conditions.
The Hero distinction is given to children and teens in Oregon and Washington who have exuded grace, strength and extraordinary character during their life-threatening illness. They stand unified to represent thousands of others who face similar circumstances.
While photographing these Heros over the past three years, I consistently am reminded of what is truly important in life: a tender exchange, an outreached hand, an appreciation for making each day the very best, an ability to take a few risks, and humor.
It has been an honor to learn from these Heros and their families.
Special thanks to Pro Photo Supply for file prep and printing of all of the images.
