New York Magazine is currently working on a very important feature story about New Yorkers living with cancer. For a potential cover, we would like to gather 300-350 New Yorkers living with cancer or in remission, in one place, for an incredibly positive & moving picture. We are looking for people of all ages, and of all races to to be photographed together.We want to show the unity of the fight, so we are asking everyone to dress on their own, as they normally would- no organization specific t-shirts. We want the picture to look like a beautiful group of wildflowers. We hope this will help raise awareness & funding for all.
Any interested participants should contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
