Sometimes being in the photography community is more than just talking to each other about new techniques or sharing new photos. Sometimes it could be something much bigger and much more meaningful. 30 year old New York based photographer Michael Popp is fighting Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, and needs your help to fight it. Michael needs over $100,000 for treatments and drugs, and is nowhere close to this amount right now. Lets all help him and prove this is more than a community - it's a family.
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia is the most common type of cancer in children. This type of leukemia causes damage and death by crowding out normal cells in the bone marrow with immature white blood cells, and by spreading to other organs. In children, treatments result in a good chance for a cure. Acute lymphocytic leukemia can also occur in adults, however the chance of a cure is greatly reduced. Mike Popp just turned 30 while getting treatment at Sloan Kettering. Acute lymphocytic leukemia has the ability to be fatal in as little as a few weeks if left untreated.
Lets do it - Help Mike.
