The Victory Center in Toledo, OH is an organization very close to my heart! The Victory Center makes going through cancer treatment bearable – which makes me want to help get the word out about this wonderful organization. No one should have to go that journey lost or alone and The Victory Center makes sure that no one does.

“For nearly 17 years The Victory Center has been reaching out to cancer patients and their families…providing love, support, compassion, hope and laughter.
Last year alone we provided almost 8000 units of free service to those in our community going through the journey of a lifetime. We are completely privately funded – no government money or health insurance reimbursements – so the generosity of businesses and individuals keeps us going.”
The Radiant in Red Fashion Show was put on by volunteers & sponsors to keep the funding strong. I was SO happy to help this WONDERFUL organization and document this AMAZING event and photograph such WONDERFUL people!
These Awesome Sponsorship’s & Awesome Businesses & Awesome People made it all happen!
