Hoping to learn and to sharePosted by Lynette on June 19, 2012 at 12:42am
I am sharing today photos of Riley taken by Leo. We are always so thankful that new families allow us to share their beautiful children.
Soul continues to be very busy and we are working right along while our dear Megan is with her family mourning the loss of her special grandma.
I am looking forward to learning a lot about cancer from the patients side of things and hope to put that to good use for our work with Soulumination. I also hope to make a difference in how cancer is perceived and how we respond to patients. With guidance from my pal Austen I want to become more positive and embrace this journey with love and even a bit of enthusiasm, and I think that is happening especially thru the superhero//warrior dress-up fun.
I can see that its confusing for people to see a bald middle aged woman with a cane wearing a tasteful but vinyl cat woman suit and that they don’t know how to deal with me. I love it when young people just speak up and say fun things, even the tiny boy who took one look at me and didn’t flinch, saying “We are going to the parade too.!” Indeed that was the kind of upbeat response with no worries that melts me.. Or the handsome man at the Sostice parade who asks “ are you Lynette? When I say yes, he says we have never met but you are David’s sister——he said that there was not mistaking the face, obviously the hair loss let him see my family in me, so nice.
I hope you saw the lovely piece done by King 5’s Mimi Jung and Randy Eng abot the head shaving party. You can watch on this link:http://www.king5.com/community/Community-rallies-around-extraordinary-Seattle-photographer-159137685.html
We are most grateful to Mimi Jung and Randy Eng for their hard work and devotion to producing such a thoughtful piece.
Many of our Soul photographers also took photos of the head shaving event. Here is a slide show by Soul photographer, Michael.
Moving forward each and everyday with the help of amazing volunteers and devoted photographers. We are grateful for support and love to work to fulfill our mission, in love and peace, Lynette
