The love of the Beadle Family shines through in this Family Session.
I thought this would be a great time to post this story to wrap up the end of the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.
I had the pleasure of meeting Brittney and some of her family when she was getting ready for her upcoming benefit at the Johnny Vegas Lounge in Taylor PA. This happened to be where I play a fun free poker event twice a week (play chips, it has since moved to a new location). You could tell even when first meeting Brittney that she was ready to take on her fight against stage four breast cancer. What determination and strength she has at the young age of 18 to take on such a battle and kick it’s butt!
Brittney was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer at the age of 18. Originally a missed diagnosis led to her cancer spreading. You can read more about her story in a few of these articles from The Times Tribune and Happenings Magazine which will do a better job of getting all of the details right then I could probably do here.
So we had an opportunity to donate to Brittney as well as donate a $400 gift certificate for her raffle drawing she was having at her event. Through a few phone conversations I learned that Brittney had asked if she could use that gift certificate for her own family as she wanted to be able to capture the love she has for her whole family. What an amazing thing! So I said no…. instead we will give you an additional larger one just for your family. And that is what we did.
We decided on going to McDade Park in Scranton. I found this beautiful yellow fall tree to be the background for our photos. Brittney invited her mom, brother, grandparents, and many other members of their family, which made for some amazing photos for their photo album that we made for them and additional wall art prints.
I am happy to say that Brittney is doing great with her treatments, and it was an absolute pleasure for me to get to photograph her family and hear her story. We wish her nothing but the best in the future, and hope that we can photograph their family for years to come.
Brittney wanted to pose with the Pink gloves that you see above as a way to show that she is beating cancer every day! And she is doing just that. She is in remission! Of course there is still a lot of on going treatment and testing to be done to maintain that progress. If you would like to help the Beadle family, they still have an active GoFundMe account that you can help contribute to HERE
Enjoy these photos and make sure to give us a call at 570-690-2019 to book your family session! (yes this can be done in the winter as well)
