Donations For Dionne

Recently my best friend Dionne, an amazing photographer and mother of two boys, was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of breast cancer.  Like most self employed photographers she does not have disability insurance to fall back on.  Knowing the difficult financial road that lies ahead I am asking for your help.  Dionne has been advised by her doctors that she should not be working, however having two young sons to provide for means that she will need help.  Whatever you can spare will make a difference - even if it means skipping your daily Starbucks stop for today.  With everything she is about to face and fight, we can at least ease her financial burden!

If you would like to view her work you can do so here:

She will be chronicling her journey which you can view here:

If you would like to read more about why I have started this petition or what an amazing friend Dionne is, you can view my full blog post here.

And we have created a Facebook page, if you would like to follow her progress you can do so here:

We will also be accepting item donations to be auctioned off at different fundraisers.  If you are interested in donating any items to be auctioned please contact me directly at [email redacted].

100% of the donations received will go towards Dionne's medical and living expenses and the care of her two young children.

Thank you all for your help - I know that together we can make a BIG difference!
