This is a simple project: to make portraits of 100 people who have beaten cancer and then ask businesses to support three brilliant charities by sponsoring a photo.
We know that we can't make a difference to everyone who is affected by cancer, but perhaps we can make a difference to some. It is a small project, but it has big ambitions, and we hope it will provide just enough funding to help research edge a little bit closer to finally beating cancer. To do that, we need your help. That can be something as easy as telling your friends about The 100 Project, sponsoring a photo, or even taking part by meeting us to have your portrait taken.
We're trying to show people that cancer can be indiscriminate and has extraordinary effects on ordinary people. We are working really hard to make sure that everyone we meet receives a beautiful portrait that shows who they are and what is important to them.
No one asks for cancer and it can strike at any age from 1 to 100. The people we have met are vibrant, energetic, ambitious, and have families. Many don’t smoke or drink. They didn't ask for cancer; cancer, for some reason, came to them out of the blue. They like and dislike all sorts of things. Some of them even dislike having their photo taken - just like you!
