PHOTOS THAT UNITE
Giving Voice to Those Impacted by Cancer.
Uniting community around those impacted by cancer will support the efforts of those working to find a cure, lobbying for improved health benefits and create additional channels of support for anyone impacted by the diagnosis of cancer.
Since an early age photography and science have played important roles in photographer Jennifer Langille's life. Having been fortunate enough to work with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to complete a series of “day-in-the-life” photo essays of those impacted by breast cancer, Jennifer saw first-hand how powerful story-telling can support a cause.
The assignment took her into the homes of those fighting breast cancer as well as the clinical setting where teams come together to help in that fight. BCRF is currently using the content created on their website, social media, direct marketing, and printed materials to raise necessary funds to support the researchers working towards a cure. The BCRF project inspired PHOTOS THAT UNITE.
“Over the past year, Jennifer Langille worked with BCRF to help us tell powerful stories from people who have been impacted by breast cancer. Her photographs have captured intimate moments in organic and authentic ways that have allowed our supporters to connect with the cause. We are deeply grateful for her generosity with her time and talent which have been invaluable to advancing our mission.”
- Zoë Mintz, Manager of Digital Communications for BCRF
