Two years ago my friend, Lauren Miyake, put down her camera to start a new career. Not too long after, in the midst of my cancer battle, she picked it back up to fight cancer for and with all of us, through the lens.
Lauren captured the tattoo that came out of my cancer fight for the December 2012 Skin & Ink Magazineand for the companion Needles and Sins blog. More recently, she shot the Piper Gore ~ Allison W. Gryphon Fighting Breast Cancer with Fashion look book due out this summer.
Close to my heart, and a great message to everyone, Lauren’s work reminds us all that you don’t have to be a doctor to make a difference. We all have talents. Use yours to fight cancer.
