Breast Cancer Awareness/Research

My name is Arthur Hitchcock and I am a 18 year old photographer/student. Last month my mom, Janet Hitchcock, passed away from Stage 4 Breast Cancer. My father (also a photographer) passed away when I was 2 from a lifelong heart condition. Being on my own at such a young age, has made school/work pretty difficult, but I think the time has come to go out and experience life. For years I have been planning a cross-country trip, and now I think is the time to start. I will be walking alone in the Spring from Long Beach, CA to Maine. I would like to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. I need help with sponsorship, publicity, and everything else. I really want to make an impact, and do something no one else ever has. I hope this reaches someone who is interested in helping me, or someone who can point me in the right direction as far as raising money and awareness. Eventually I would like for my house in Long Beach to develop into a community art center in memory of my parents and to everything they have done for me. I would love to be able to have a place where everyone I meet and know can come and be creative or at least feel welcome.
Also, this entire journey will be documented by me, with photographs, poems, short stories and HD video. These will be uploaded to a blog all throughout the walk. (arthurhitchcock.tumblr.com)


HELP ME RAISE MONEY FOR A GREAT CAUSE, AND LETS TRY TO MAKE AN IMPACT! DONATIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED BUT NOT MANDATORY! 

Also, If you could spread the word to anyone you know that might be interested. Im in need of sponsors, and good old-fashioned connections.

Tell your parents, teachers, and anyone else that might be able to help. Sometimes you might be surprised at who will respond and what they might have to offer could be invaluable to me.

Thank You All.

-Email, Email, Email, Call, Call, Call, Write, Write, Write, Tell, Tell, Tell Anyone and everyone.
