I think I should start off by saying that this post deals with some tough subject matter. In the photo below is my friend Kaz, and for the last couple of years he’s been battling brain cancer. On December 20th he had his 5th operation, and the results came back that the tumor has become more aggressive and has reached a point that is too deep in the brain to operate on. The cancer is terminal.
I took this portrait of Kaz yesterday after spending some time photographing him with his wife and 18 month old daughter. It’s an indescribable thing to deal with, I’ve sat here for a long time trying to put it into writing, and I simply can’t. All any of us can do is help out where its needed, and for anyone interested there is a fundraiser being held in Saskatoon on January 22, 2011 at the Sutherland Bar where all of the proceeds will be going towards an education fund for his daughter as well as making it possible for his wife to take the time off work so they can spend the time they have left together as a family. A big thank you to everyone who can do anything to help.
I’ve had a few requests from people who can’t make it to the fundraiser to set up a way that they can help with a donation, so if you’d like to donate you can do so by clicking on the Donate button below. 100% of the donated funds will be sent Kaz and his family.
