Local Photographer Donates Session Fees to Fight Canine Cancer
During August and September 2012, pet photographers from across the country will partner with The National Canine Cancer Foundation in Smile for a Cure, a campaign to raise awareness and funds in the fight against canine cancer.
Participating photographers donate 100% of their session fees to The National Canine Cancer Foundation, a non-profit, 501(c)3 dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health issue in dogs. 1 in 4 dogs will be diagnosed with Cancer, and 50% of them will die from this terrible disease.
Founded in 2009 by North Carolina pet photographer Nunthany Johnson, Smile for a Cure is composed of a caring group of pet photographers all across the country dedicated to making a difference in the lives of dogs with cancer & the people who love them. Smile for a Cure is a direct result of cancer hitting home, when Johnson’s Bichon Frise Max was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, a fatal cancer of the blood vessels.
Local Charleston photographer Dana Cubbage felt led to join the movement, having lost three of her family's Golden Retrievers to the disease in the past 10 years. "I'm very concerned with the prevalence of canine cancer in all dogs, and I hope to raise funds for research so that someday families won’t have to watch their beloved pets suffer from this disease."
