I am a Father and a Husband and I pray to God that I never, ever experience the feelings that losing a child would bring.
The darkness and loss would be far more than my wife and I could bear. But I know that somehow we would make it through those dark days.
As the days turned into weeks, and the weeks into years…..the pain would never go away. It would be something I wouldn’t wish on anyone, ever!!!!!
The other day, while I was following Canberra’s Super Heavyweight Kickboxing Champion Ben Edwards, I came across a fundraising event he conducted called Big Beards for Benny. After a bit of digging around I found out who Benny was…. and it broke my heart!!!!
Reading about the life and death of this innocent young child was enough to make a grown man cry. I knew that I had to do something to help so I got in contact with the parents and volunteered my time and photographic expertise to assist in their fundraising. I now have the great honour of being the official photographer for their up-and-coming charity 4th Gala Dinner to be held on the 14th of September 2013. I must say I am excited to be able to help them with this fantastic event.
The pain and suffering these parents face each and every day must be unbearable. For them to continue on and fight for a cause to help other children is nothing short of amazing.
I know you may not be able to come to the event but I would urge you to please make a donation if you can.
