Teens Living with Cancer

Posted: June 13, 2012 by Judy Licht Photography in Children, General, Portraits, Sports, Teens

When teens are fighting to overcome the challenges of cancer, it’s hard to find the time, energy, or motivation to exercise.  Teens Living With Cancer (TLC) is a national organization, based in Rochester, NY, that has organized a fitness program, geared to young people struggling to get well.  The goal of the program is to build confidence and physical strength and well-being.  The program is expanding to the DC area this fall.

One afternoon, a group of kids met me at the Bethesda YMCA.  Trainer Nola Murphy brought exercise equipment and moved the kids through some fun activities.  For me, it was great to capture smiles and laughter as they mugged for the camera.  For them and their moms, our hour together was a respite from the rigors of doctors’ visits and listless days recovering from treatment.  For more information, TLC is online at teenslivingwithcancer.org
