Excited for updated #headshots with @mariamoorephotography tomorrow! I am doing my headshots for my #nonprofit #finneganfoundation and can't wait!! I've been Maria's main makeup artist for six years when we began our freelance journey together, so naturally I couldn't think of anyone else to do head shots for my non profit team. *
*Not just a
#makeupartist, I'm an activist for a void in medical assistance for families like mine with children that have a #lifethreateningdisease and other diagnosed illnesses. *
*Quick brief; my 26 yr old son had a #bonemarrowtransplant last year, April 3rd and is still in transplant recovery with some health issues. He was in isolation over 45 days in the hospital , 1500 miles away in Minneapilis for 173 days. I was gone most of those days taking care of him, not working and losing jobs because of it. There isn't funding or financial assistance for young adults that don't have cancer ( although it's a cancer leading disease) and he's outlived the pediatric disease, so no help . He would not be alive if he didn't get this transplant ( please register on the national bone marrow registry ). One of my daughter has the same disease, more illnesses and will one day need a bone marrow transplant too. I will help my children and others as well as educate others on this life threatening disease and all that a patient and family goes through during this time. Eleven months later and he still has a long way to go, cannot work, attend school and will soon have to get his hips replaced due to the amount of meds that damaged his bones.
Save the date for April 19th , we have a huge , fun event coming up. Hint *looking for a fun hat to wear and get your fella a bow tie. 😉
