Launch of Be Bold, Feel Beautiful!
Wednesday, July 7, 2010
On July 1, 2010- "Local cancer patients sought for 'Be Bold, Feel Beautiful' photo project.
Mid-Michigan women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments are being asked to shed their wigs for a photography project designed to raise awareness of about the disease and the powerful women who battle it!
"We want women with cancer to step up, be bold and be photographed without their wigs and scarves to show people how very beautiful they can be," says Lansing area photographer, Terri Shaver, who founded The Oldham Project, which provides free portraits to people suffering from life threatening or terminal illnesses. "We want to illustrate the ravages of breast cancer and chemotherapy, but emphasize the courage and beauty of these women."
The Oldham Project is partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure/Mid-Michigan on this "Be Bold, Feel Beautiful" campaign, which hopes to photograph up to 200 women in the mid-Michigan area who are currently undergoing chemotherapy. Private sessions can be scheduled Monday through Thursdays, including Monday evenings. Douglas J. Spa is a major sponsor and is offering FREE makeup applications prior to photography sessions.
We hope to use these images throughout the month of October to promote breast cancer awareness by making these women more accepting of themselves, celebrating their courage, their beauty and encouraging others that are in the same battle for their lives.
Please call 517.256.0490 to schedule an appointment or to become a partner of The Oldham Project and Be Bold, Feel Beautiful.
Sponsorships are available and much appreciated. We'd love to be able to give each and every one of these brave women a portrait of themselves as well as honor them at a Gala at the end of the year to honor them.
