Last year around this time I decided to enter in to Movember and grow a mustache to help bring awareness to Prostate Cancer. With the help of Facebook and the www.movember.com website I was able to raise money for Prostate Canada. My Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer and thankfully for medical research and treatment he is going to be okay. I was contacted by a member of the photosensitive website when she saw my self portraits taken for Movember on flicker. I then took a photograph of my Dad and I and submitted that to Photosensitive. They then put together a massive collection of black and white images of Canadians and their stories related to prostate cancer and this show is now touring across Canada.
I am especially honored that Jack Layton's picture is included in this exhibition of work. He was such a GREAT man and it is just a huge honor to have my Dad's picture up with his. I am so thankful for the people at Photosensitive for the work they do. The world is a better place for having such wonderful and caring people in it. My heart goes out to all of the families impacted by cancer and I truly hope together we can work together to lessen the sadness cancer brings and hopefully end it.
