I first met Samuel's mommy when she hired me as her birth photographer. We recently set up Samuel's six month photo session in Downtown Louisville. The weather had different plans and forced us into one of my favorite lifestyle sessions of all time.
While I would love to tell you more about my story surrounding Samuel, his mommy and daddy, and this ridiculously fun lifestyle session, this blog post is to tell you Samuel's story instead...
Samuel was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at just 18 days old. There are currently about 30,000 people in the US with this genetic disease and the life expectancy is only 37 years old. While Samuel is a healthy, normal boy right now, his parents work diligently to keep him that way with medications and chest physical therapy twice daily. Their hope is to find a cure in his lifetime that will allow him to grown into a very old man, and science is getting close!
If you care to make a donation to help find a cure for CF, you can at www.cff.org/Kentucky. Be sure to make it in honor of Samuel Sweeney!
