AWARE CT's 2019-2020 partner is
The Cancer Couch Foundation
a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC)
AWARE has started a dialogue in our community about metastatic breast cancer (Stage 4). We invite you to share your stories for a fight that impacts us all. Sit for a portrait or make a donation. Be a part of our collective effort to raise awareness and resources for a cure for Stage 4, and stand for a cause that impacts all of us.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
1. Have your photograph taken and share your story.
2. Sponsor a loved one who would like to share their story.
3. Simply make a donation to help fund research for a cure.
To participate we are asking for a minimum donation of $250. Donors may choose to sponsor an individual other than themselves to take part in the campaign. All participants receive a 45 minute photography session with local photographer Jerri Graham. The photographs will be paired with participants' personal narratives about how breast cancer has impacted their lives. Photography sessions will be held on Sundays, and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons/ evenings from March 9th through early May 2020. Once you complete your donation, an AWARE member will contact you to schedule your photo session.
AWARE is currently planning a second gallery show for mid June. Date and location to be announced.
Photographs will also be used as part of the AWARE social media campaign.
All proceeds will be donated to The Cancer Couch Foundation. Every dollar of which will be matched by an existing Cancer Couch Foundation private donor.
