Last summer I met this amazing woman/photographer/friend … Jen Berry … at a workshop in California. She and I got to know each other a little through email and Facebook chat before we went to the Jasmine Star‘s workshop … and I couldn’t wait to meet her in person. Over the past year we’ve been able to spend some time together and have had even more chats. I adore this woman. Not only is she incredibly talented and blows me away with her vision … she is really funny, sweet, caring and one of the most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
At WPPI, I had the opportunity of meeting her husband Steve and we totally hit it off and had a riot!! It was so nice spending time with the two of them and I felt like I had known them forever! I was very sad to hear they were leaving Vegas earlier than expected … and even sadder when I heard the reason. Steve had been in remission with Hodgkin’s but it was back and they needed to get back to California to see his doctors…
I am always donating to different charities and supporting local kids etc. … but 95% of the time it is for strangers … when I saw that one of Jen & Steve’s friends were running a marathon to help raise money to kick cancers a$$ … I was more than happy to donate. It always makes me feel good to support in any way I can and since I can’t be there to give them a big gigantic hug … this is the best that I can do to show my support … I hope all of you will check out Clare’s website and help her exceed her goal! It doesn’t need to be a huge donation … every little bit helps :).
Steve is a very funny & optimistic guy … you should check out his website http://dicktersbedpan.wordpress.com to find out for yourself!
