Grace and Gratitude in 2015

Angelfb

Thank you so much to all who supported the Grace project in 2015.

Thanks to all who made financial contributions to the Grace project, to those who lent us their homes and venues, to those who cooked us dinners on the road and welcomed us into their homes, to those who showed up at our events, to those who supported and shared our important message online and to those who held a space for us in their hearts. May you all have a fruitful and healthy 2016.

We still need your help:

Please consider an end of year contribution to help us reach our dream of photographing 800 women who have had mastectomy as a result of breast cancer.  (The approximate number of women newly diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States each day). 

A tax deductible contribution can be made HERE:

In addition we had many adventures, We took Kisha on a bucket list wish trip with her best friend Starling on our sparkly foray through the midwest.

We celebrated Veeka’s “birthday” , the anniversary of her bone marrow transplant at the Cancer Support Community in St Louis.

We participated in the “die in” on Capitol Hill to raise awareness for metastatic breast cancer.

Sadly this year we lost some beautiful souls.

Beautiful Goddesses that will live on in our hearts.
