I had the privilege of photographing a very special event last week, held by Simply Supper in Edmonton. The event is held each year to help provide meals to individuals or families that are having a hard time and are in need of a little help. Simply Supper owner, Monita Chapman, along with sponsors, volunteers, and supporting businesses work incredibly hard to deliver 1200 meals to 75 families in Edmonton. What an amazing event to be a part of!
Not only did I get to be a part of the preparation, I was able to attend a delivery to a very deserving family. This beautiful and kind single mother had a devastating diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer, and had just undergone a double mastectomy. Along with all the pain and emotions that she must feel everyday, she was still a mother and had to make dinner for her children. Simply Supper Helps gave her the opportunity to stop worrying about making meals and simply spend time with her family. I can not even imagine how amazing that little bit of help must be.
I would like to thank everyone that took part in this amazing event, and to the owner, Monita Chapman, for hosting an incredible and inspiring meal drive. Thank you for letting me be a part of something so wonderful.
