Thank you all for your kind words. As you can see, the beauty is not from any skills, but from these gifts from God! I'm glad to say Evan is going well and the 11 children I photographed are all inspirations and the calendar has brought in over $32,000 in profit to the Piediatric unit since November!!
i hope everyone finds inspiration in this image! #1001556

You are an inspiration to the photography world. You are someone who is using your god given talent to give back to his children. I applaud you! This photograph is for touching and makes me remember how very lucky I am to be given a gift of phtography and to be able to use it in a constructive way. You inspire me.
And where can a person such as myself purchase a calendar? #1001564

What an amazing idea. These children are faced with so much in their young lives. So many people are out of touch with the struggle. Great way to use your gift to honor others... #1001644

Congratulations Diane! This certainly brought tears to my eyes. I hope Evan is doing well. Children are such troopers when illness strikes them.

Photograph of my neighbor Evan under going chemotherapy for Leukemia holding one of my handraised Monarchs. This photo inspired me to create a calendar for Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital honoring the inspiration of these young fighters. 100% of the procedes goes to the Pediatric Oncology Unit.
I believe God had his hand in this one!
