Super Spence

Meet sweet Spencer. He is just 7 years old and fighting a battle with cancer. He was diagnosed with a Rhabdomyosarcoma, a malignant tumor in his parapharyngeal space in February. Just a week ago Hollys {Spencers amazing mom) friends put together a giant fundraiser. I photographed the event. It was so great- they had so much support. The only bummer was that Spencer wasn't able to attend the event. So heart wrenching. At the event they had a section where anyone could get their head shaved. You wouldn't even believe how many people did it. It was over 75 people that shaved their locks off to support Spencer. I'll post images from that later.
Then, this past Sunday I was able to photograph Spencer getting his head shaved. He has so much support and love on his side. This was my favorite image from that night. It's the kind of photo that does make you feel something. I love the strength and love you can see in his moms face. Truly touching. When I think of Spencer it makes me want to hug my own children tighter and tell them how deeply I love them. Life is fragile, and oh so precious.


To support Spencer and his family, check out their blog here.

Wow, amazing! That is what kind of cancer I had when I was little rhabdomysarcoma, only mine was of the bladder. Please give them my info. if they ever want to talk, or my mom's, who went through and remembers way more than I do. They will be in my prayers, please wish them all the best from another cancer survivor!

Wow Jen, this is truly priceless. What a gift to give their family. To document the fight will be a treasure this family will keep one day and look back on and say, "how did we do that?" I'm glad you were able to do this for them. What a valuable gift. Kisses
