The Gold Hope Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit organization. We are a group of photographers aiming to gift families battling a pediatric cancer diagnoses free portrait session for their little warriors. Many families with ill children are emotionally, physically and finanicially strapped; it is the heart of The Gold Hope Project to take at least one worry off their shoulders and gift them something magical – the smilies of their children frozen in time. The Gold Hope Project’s goal is to make sure that these already over-burdened families have an everlasting documentation of the joy and whimsy of their children while simultaneously raising awareness of and funds for pediatric oncology research and treatment.
Our mission at The Gold Hope Project is simple- we want to bring awareness to childhood cancer through photography. While we wish the phrase, “your child has cancer” didn’t exist, the sad fact is approximately 13,500 parents sit across from doctors and hear that each year. This news will cause much emotional turmoil for the families hearing it, and the financial burden that accompanies a cancer diagnosis is nearly as debilitating. The last thing most parents can afford when the medical bills are piling up is a photo session . . . but we know how much the beautiful documentation of their fight will mean to them in the years to come. Unimaginably, for some families, a Gold Hope photo session is the last professional photo session their child will ever have. With each donation the project receives, we can gift one more family the reality of preserving this moment with their little fighter.
