Photo Club Participates In A Unique Project
The MDC Kendall Campus photography club participated in the family portrait project, a program created by professor Tony Chirinos to promote child cancer awareness through art at Baptist Medical Plaza on Nov. 6
Students from the club took 8x10 photos of four families of children with cancer. The project was seven years in the making.
“You’re not just taking a photo, you’re making a memory,” Chirinos reminded his students during the photo session.
All four families that participated had children with leukemia. Leukimia is cancer of the blood and is caused by the abnormal production of white blood cells.
Liza Guanch 8, whose cancer is in remission, attended with her family. Her mother Liz Guanch is devoted to working with the Children’s Oncology Group at Baptist Medical Plaza.
“We are working on bringing awareness to communities and want people to know that kids get cancer too,” Liz Guanch said.
The photography club is hoping to have another family portrait day before the end of the semester.
“I like the atmosphere of the club, we all get along in our own unique way” said MDC Kendall Campus photography club vice president Nikolaus Fink. “Today was a nice team effort.”
