I've been told this pic is too heavy.. well cancer is heavy. Its not a light flowery subject we can sugar coat. I'm not always gonna be in a photo smiling with a skateboard in my hand. I lost my mother to cancer and I've made a point in my travels to raise awareness on cancer. Whether it be with Athletes for Hope or the St.Baldrick's foundation or having a simple photo taken with my mothers portrait in hand. This subject affects us all. Simple gestures can mean the world to someone going through treatment or perhaps has a family member or friend that needs support of any kind. Not only fund raising but moral support, hugs, conversations, smiles. Whatever it takes to help. We are all in this together - Doug Brown
