In January, I put up an exhibition called, Heart of the Warrior: Portraits of Women Who Share in the Fight Against Breast Cancer. About a month ago, I got a call from the Governor's office asking me about the project and wanting to help me potentially move forward with it. I was invited to the launch of Governor Cuomo's, "Get Screened. No Excuses." Campaign. It was awesome to be there surrounded in people who support this cause. The photo below is from that day. It is Governor Cuomo, and Sandra Lee getting ready to go sign a bill to make it more accessible for people to get screened.
After six months that I have been away from this project, I am both humbled and excited to move forward.
I have been asked to present the Heart of the Warrior Exhibition at the Long Island Beauty Ball on September 26th at Crest Hollow Country Club. This is a huge event! Their goal is to raise $250,000 this year! For information on how to purchase tickets, visit: www.longislandbeautyball.com
As far as moving forward in other capacities... I'm not sure exactly what that will be yet. Maybe another shoot? Maybe a publication of this work? I feel like this will likely be an ongoing project... as Breast Cancer is an ongoing problem. And there are always more women to inspire and celebrate.
