The photos, as the only memory left
By Adriana Quedens
A women who founded this project, Nancy Borowick, has her parents that both have cancer. She does't know much of what to do, so she takes photos of them for memories. In the photo below the man (Nancy's father) says that him and his wife always sit on those chairs and he calls it the "his and hers" chairs. <3
When the numbers add up
Nancy has 572 backers so far, but the more she has... The better. She has $52,770 when she only wanted $45,000 and she only has 26 more days to go before she releases the album of photos that are mainly focused on her families love, and strength in the face of the mortality. She is really trying to stretch for $60,000, so with backers helping she should reach it, but she only has 26 days left.
