What

To help aid the feeling of homesickness many families experience, Childhood Cancer Support (CCS) has teamed up with generous supporter Andy Graves from Essence of Time Photography, who has put together a photography program for both CCCS families and non-families from regional areas who have children with cancer. Professional photography can be beneficial in numerous ways, from allowing families to decorate their temporary lodgings with some beautiful family shots, to enjoying the therapeutic process of photography itself.
