A few months ago, I was approached by a good friend who mentioned the Hannah Banana Foundation to me. It is a foundation run by a family friend that was started to honor her mother who fought a long battle with cancer. The goal of the foundation is to provide care packages to adult cancer patients undergoing treatment in hospitals. While most foundations focus on children, sometimes the adults get a bit forgotten and we take for granted that adults can take care of themselves. Hannah Banana makes sure those adults aren’t forgotten about, and attempts to raise their spirits through the hardest time of their life.
I was asked to photograph their annual gala and jumped at my chance to give a little something to this worthy cause. Almost 300 people filled the carnival room at the Bowlmor Times Square to eat, drink, dance, play some games and celebrate the life of a lost love one and give back to those fighting the fight.
