My friend Angela was so kind to call me and let me know there was a family

that would very much treasure my work as a volunteer photographer.

I am so fortunate to meet and get to know the “Duffy” family….

Pietra’s Village – Fundraiser

Welcome to Pietra’s Village

“It takes a village” is a phrase that the Cameron Park Community takes to heart.  One of our families needs our help.  Right before Christmas 2009 Pietra Duffy (mom, wife, friend, KidzArt teacher) was diagnosed with Stage 3B non-small cell adenocarcinoma (lung cancer – nonsmoker).  Two weeks later, Shawn Duffy was laid off from his job.

Right now 100 percent of their efforts have to be focused on curing Pietra – helping her get through every day of grueling chemotherapy and the side effects that are inevitable.   We do not want them to have the added stress of the fear of losing their home because they can’t afford the increased cost of COBRA and other medical expenses.

We are holding a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser – and not your ordinary Spaghetti dinner – PAPA GIANNI’S SPAGHETTI dinner.   There will be lots of incredible raffle items.   Please come and join Pietra’s Village by coming to our dinner/fundraiser or donating directly to the family below!
