The Grim Statistics On Pediatric Cancer (Letter to the Editor Wall Street Journal)
This is a letter to the editor from parents of two children (Penelope and Hazen) that died from neuroblastoma. John and Scott have been relentlessly pursuing a cure for childhood cancers through their foundation Solving Kids Cancer.
Picture Your Life After Cancer (New York Times Multimedia feature)
This is a multimedia feature on the NY Times website. Hannah (with our stand-in for Max) and Nicky's picture (and the story behind why they were featured), will also be featured in the British magazine Easy Living in March '11. The goal here was to insert a childhood cancer story into what was mainly an adult cancer story of survivorship - to remind readers that the war has not been "won" and that the "survivors" of childhood cancer are frequently the affected child's familes.
Photography Interview with Deb Schwedhelm
This is what I call Trojan Horse awareness. Into what otherwise could be an everyday piece of media, a childhood cancer story takes over. This is where the storytelling we've been doing of Max has been so effective - reaching people who may pass over the headline containing the words "childhood cancer." Deb's continued awareness raising of childhood cancer is, like her photographs of Max and our family, priceless.
