While many Americans are healthier than ever before, minorities and the poor are more likely to get cancer and die from the disease. Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida focused on the crisis of health disparities during National Minority Cancer Awareness Week (NMCAW), April 20-26.
Heidi has been doing a rotation at Moffitt this month and through her contacts there I was invited to display my It Pains O’ Why portrait series at the final event of NMCAW at Moffitt. Though the specific focus of the event was on the health issues of American minorities Moffitt realizes the need for health care and education reaches beyond our nation and around the globe.
I was very honored to display my photos in such a prestigious health center and enjoyed sharing the work that BMC has been doing in Ghana. You can support BMC’s work by purchasing a print of one of my photographs and the profits from the sale go entirely to the George Faile Foundation.
