We have an insanely busy day today. Not only are we up at the crack of dawn (actually 5:30) to set up the Brides for the Cure tent in Rogers, then walking the Race for the Cure, but we are also photographing a wedding (we have to be there right after the race - yikes!) It would be easy to make excuses not to be so involved, especially with a wedding in the morning. However, there is a great reason why we feel so compelled to help make a difference.
Ellie's "Nana" Denise was diagnosed this past year with breast cancer.
Denise loves life more than just about anyone I've ever known. She always sees the best in people, always has a smile on her face, and is always enthusiastic to help others. She's been an amazing grandma for Ellie, not only modeling how to love, but also teaching her how to embrace life (even when it doesn't seem fair). Ellie and Nana are extremely close, so much so that Ellie has gone to treatments, surgeries, and doctor appointments with her. I adore the relationship Nana and Ellie have and feel blessed that God is using Nana in such a powerful way.
Here are a few quick shots I grabbed of Denise (who is a professor at the University of Arkansas) and Ellie yesterday.
Here's to finding a Cure!
