Auction for Childhood Cancer: Katie Kett Photography
This auction is for a lifestyle session with Katie Kett Photography (in Chicago)
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. On May 16, my life was changed forever when my 22 month old was diagnosed with Leukemia. Just 4% of the billions of government dollars spent annually on cancer research goes toward treating childhood cancer and as a mom to a toddler going through treatment, I wanted to do something to help other children and families going through this. All children are worth so much more than 4%. We need better funding, better treatment options, and a cure.

Where the money goes:
We are a part of our oncologist’s study and are donating 3/4 of all funds will go directly to our doctor’s pediatric cancer research. This is not something we will benefit from personally, but the goal is to do what we can to improve things for children who are diagnosed in the future. The other 1/4 will go directly to families who need financial support.
Katie Kett is one of my closest friends, and I love that she’s been by my side to document some of the most important days of my life. She photographed our wedding in Paris, Margot at 1 day old, and a few family sessions for us, too. I love her and her work. Katie generously offered to donate a portrait session. The highest bidder will receive a 1.5 hour shoot valued at $750. Thank you for always loving and supporting our family, Katie! We love you.
