ryan + bibiana | magic hour foundation photographer

If you haven't heard of the Magic Hour Foundation, I highly recommend you look it up.

After my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer, I decided to donate my time to this worthy cause--a cause that brings family photos to people who have been entrenched in the battle against cancer and may not otherwise have had a chance to capture some precious memories together.

All sessions are completely free.

When I met with these two, I had a moment to speak with them about Ryan's battle and his prognosis. I asked Bibiana to send me something to share with their photos, and this is what she had to say:

"In December 2016 Ryan was having severe headaches for about 3 weeks. December 17 he had a 7 hour emergency craniotomy to remove a brain tumor. The diagnosis was a glioblastoma which is a grade 4 malignant brain tumor. He underwent 23 rounds of radiation and very aggressive chemo treatments for 18 months. He has never stopped working or doing what he loves: riding motorcycles, skiing, rafting, hiking, and mountain biking. He has an extremely positive mind set and as he told the doctors: he is a bad ass!

His scans are now clear and we continue to be thankful, positive, active, and enjoying life."

So glad I got to meet these two through their story. If you haven't checked out the foundation, you can do so here: https://magichour.org

Thanks again, Ryan + Bibiana! I wish you continued health and success against this terrible disease!
