I was so nervous for my First Survivor Portrait session, I didn’t know if women would come, if they would like it, if they enjoy the session… But for me … I loved it and so did the women who came, it’s really been a great experience. I do believe that it’s vital to remind ourselves who we are and that we’re beautiful inside and outside; regardless of age, regardless of illness, regardless of convenience. That it’s what Survivor Portriat It’s all about, It’s to arm all those brave warriors who have or have had cancer with the one thing that proves elusive to all women: self confidence. It’s wasn’t about flattery, It’s about empowerment.
Thank you to all Beautiful Survivors that participate in this project: Rochelle, Mary Jo, Sara and Rakesha, thank you for your confidence, for sharing your story, from the bottom of my heart, thank you and Stay Beautiful!
I believe that is too sad that some people has to pass throughout a challenges like a disease, but I firmly believe that in disease is where you really get to know the people with whom you can count. I’ve always believed everything happens for a reason and everything that happens to us is an opportunity to make us grow and mature.
“We have little control over the things that life throws at us but we always have the choice of how we face them”
This is the first year of my Survivor Portrait Project. I feel great having started this chapter in my life, that it allowed me to meet wonderful Women as Rochelle who does not give up by adversity. With a beautiful smile Rochelle says “I’m blessed to have my life”, after battling cancer she learns to enjoy every moment with her beautiful family and closest friends, Rochelle is so fortunate to be a mother of one beautiful girl and a handsome boy and she counts with their invaluable love, her parents and friends had been a wonderful support for her at this stage of her life.
