Damn... I really hate childhood diseases... like reeeeally hate them! It's so unfair and heartbreaking to these sweet families that have to have this battle every day of their lives when times should be fun and easy... I met this sweet Mamma in the spring... she was embarrassed and shy to ask if our company could donate for a fundraiser to help Sheridan... Sheridan has a very rare lung disease... like 200 children in the world have this... so there isn't much research sadly... I was SO HAPPY to help in any way we could!!! We got to know each through tears on the phone together to long hugs... to me asking her if I could please photograph their sweet family!!! She was over the moon to have this done! between driving to hospitals to getting treatments their family never ever had photographs taken... Photographing families like this makes me of course feel sad... but also hopeful... you cannot believe these mammas of these children... I like to call them Superheros! Since I have been shooting really brave families I hardly ever take days for granted... I don't worry about the little things... health matters so much... each day is such a gift and we should all feel so fortunate!
Please keep this sweet beautiful girl in your thoughts... I love you Sheridan!
