This is a very special post to me, not only because this family is awesome and we had SO much fun during our shoot, but also because this family needs your help. Owen, who is now 8, has been struggling with leukemia (ALL) since he was 3 years old. He recently relapsed and will undergo chemo therapy next month. There will be a blood drive and a FREE marrow registration in his honor on September 30, 2011. Please, please consider putting September 30, 2011 on your calendar and COMMITTING to blood donation by sending your name, phone #, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The drive will be held in Spring Park, MN at Wayzata Childrens Clinic, across from the Minnetonka Drive In. For more information and to follow Owen’s story, please visit his caring bridge site at: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/owenpilot This family was SO much fun to shoot! I could really FEEL the love they had for each other, in a way I’ve never seen before. Avery is 13 and was so sweet, and Owen (8) is hilarious! He was cracking jokes most of the time! Liz and Mark are wonderful people and amazing parents. Owen and Avery are very lucky to have them! PLEASE attend this blood drive. If this was your child, wouldn’t you want everyone to do what they could to help out? Please pass this link around so the word gets out about the blood drive and donor registration. Owen, you and your family are in my prayers!!!!
