The other night, I fell in love with Pablove.
I bought a very orange photograph of a toy stegosaurus. (And I was just telling someone that I had a thing for dinosaurs.) The photographer, Kevin, is a nine-year-old child living with cancer. He is a graduate of Pablove Shutterbugs, the Pablove Foundation’s eight week-long program that teaches cancer kids to seek out their creative voice through taking pictures. Every child gets a camera, and upon graduation, the camera is for him or her to keep forever.
Parents Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz founded Pablove after losing their six-year-old son, Pablo, to a rare form of cancer called bilateral Wilms’ Tumor.
Pablo loved taking pictures (click here to see). Oh, and he also loved bow ties (click here to buy a bow tie with Pablo’s drawings on it). Honor beautiful Pablo and help fight childhood cancer — with love.
