Making a Difference-Dr. Lisa Farkouh
Interesting story...today I got a phone call from an OB/GYN, Dr. Lisa Farkouh in Denver Colorado asking if she could use a photo of mine in her presentation about protecting infants from whooping cough. She is trying to educate new parents about inoculations and how not only should the child be inoculated but also those around the child caring for him/her. (she refers to it as cocooning the child) She is very passionate about the project since her own child fell ill to whooping cough and nearly lost her life last year. So now she has made it her mission to travel all over the country and tell others about her story in order to raise awareness about this serious subject.
So anyway, she asked to use one of my images of the babies in the cocoon to help in the campaign and I of course said yes. It's such a great feeling to be able to help Dr. Farkouh in her crusade. If you'd like to see a short clip of Dr. Farkouh talking about the importance of inoculations and "cocooning" your child click here.
Best of Luck to Dr. Lisa Farkouh on a successful campaign! I hope the image helps!
