I recently had the privilege to work with my friend and renown photographer Bill Aron on his “New Beginnings”: Surviving Cancer campaign. The video shown here is a piece we put together for his “ask”. Please take a moment and visit his site http://www.cancersurvivalportraits.com  and find out more about the wonderful stories and pictures of survivors Bill has captured.

In addition I had the pleasure of recording some cancer survivor voice overs. They were warm and funny and true inspirations.

“New Beginnings: Surviving Cancer, 100 Stories,” is a collection of narratives and photographic portraits of men, women, and families of children, of various ages and ethnicities, for whom a diagnosis has turned into a positive force in their lives. These are vibrant survivors, who are fully alive in spirit, mind, and body, in spite of the obstacles that fate has thrown their way. In the words of Kelly, age 20: “I learned at 18 what most people take a lifetime to learn. It made me who I am, and I like the person I am today.” The participants in this project are no Lance Armstrongs; they are ordinary people, but the struggle and the way they have triumphed over that struggle is real.
