I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Erica and her daughter last spring. Our daughters are almost the same age so we were talking all about back to school and crazy outfits, and then our conversation turned to more serious matters.
You see, Erica is in desperate need of a kidney transplant. She is doing at home dialysis for hours at a time every single day. She has been on the transplant list for 5 years already and no sign on a donor yet. When she told me this, I knew I needed to do something to help her step up her search. That’s when I had this idea to create a short video that could easily be shared far and wide. I received permission from Rachel Platten and Sony Music to use the song on this project, I am very thankful for their assistance. Please watch the video and consider being tested to see if you are a match for Erica.
This is the link to the Hartford Hospital transplant info page, please start here if you are interested in learning more on the donation process.
