Warrior | ft. Saphire
Happy March! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know why this is such an important month, especially to my girl Saphire here. March is MS Awareness month. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a rare chronic disease that targets the immune system. It damages the central nervous system, causing problems with vision and muscle control. Saphire, among others, fight this disease every single day. There isn't a cure for MS, YET, but awareness is a crucial step in getting there. Therefore, I'm dedicating the first post of the month to all the MS Warriors, hoping to spread awareness to this horrible disease.
Saphire came to me with this amazing idea for an MS Awareness shoot where she asked me to style her incorporating the color orange, signifying MS Awareness. I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of what we accomplished. I'm so grateful that Saph trusted me to be a part of this project. I know how much this means to her and it made this project very personal and real. This day was crazy, but amidst the insanity we were able to create something so beautiful, so powerful, and so inspiring. In a world of chaos, there is always beauty. And Saphire Cortez is living proof that beauty and strength can emerge in the most difficult and darkest of times. Spread awareness. Share this post, share the pictures, tell the story, wear orange, research MS, DONATE to the cause. Show your strength and support in any way you can!
Happy MS Awareness Month everyone!
