On-site volunteer opportunity
Impact statement
This project will save us $5,048 , allowing us to focus our funds on advocating for more cancer research and more lives saved.

Project Details

What We Need
  • A photographer who will work with the Organization over 1-2 days to capture an important event or shoot a series of photographs to tell the Organization's story
  • A set of professionally edited, high-resolution images delivered in JPEG or TIFF format suitable for web or print use
  • Note: The photographer needs to be available in the same geographical location as the Organization or be willing to travel at own expense
What We Have In Place
  • You may view our Facebook and Twitter accounts to view some of the past event photographs. Specifically, images from our policy event every October and our Lights of Hope every summer, have been taken by professional photographers. Otherwise, most of our images have been completed by amateur photographers or volunteers.
How This Will Help

We are the movement, bringing together cancer survivors, patients, and caregivers as a unified force making the voice of the cancer community heard in the halls of government. You can help us grow by capturing the visual story of this movement at Lights of Hope Idaho, at our Cancer Research and Policy Breakfast, and at our Day at the Capitol. Told through your photographs, our story will leave a lasting impression that will be felt throughout our state.

About The Org

Our Mission

If we are to succeed in our mission to end suffering and death from cancer, it won't just happen in the doctor's office or research lab. This movement must start at the statehouse and in Congress. And, it will be led by volunteers - regular people whose lives have been impacted by cancer - rallying together to demand change from their elected officials.

What We Do

We are the organization empowering volunteers to do just that - influence change and impact the future of cancer. From gaining dramatic increases in funding for cancer research to ensuring all Americans have access to cancer care, our work is saving lives and leading to new innovative breakthroughs in how to fight this disease.

Our project is sponsored by: American Cancer Society
