Dancing For A Cure Dance Marathon [Cape Cod Event Photographer]

As a teacher Valentine's day was always one of my favorite celebrations.  Everyone in the classroom participated in sharing cards and a special song, and went home with a happy heart.  February 2nd was a like Valentine's day, as I had the honor of being the photographer for the 9th annual Dancing For a Cure (DFAC) Dance Marathon.  Susan Mendoza Friedman, dance teacher extraordinaire, founded the now Cape-wide non profit organization to honor her friend, Karen Scheck, who was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer at age 51.  Proceeds from the event will fund cutting edge ovarian and breast cancer research at the Dana-Farber Institute.  

Dancers of all ages met at the Mashpee High School gym for 4 hours of nonstop dancing.  Whether you were a participant or supporter there were plenty of activities to choose from:


A raffle table with many wonderful donations,

and some creative face painting,

You could leave a kind message for others at at the Kindness Rock Project table,
redesign your dance shirt,
relax with a chair massage,
or enjoy a bite to eat.
But mostly. it was all about the dance.  

Whether it was dancers on the stage leading the crowd in an easy-to follow routine





or performances from more than ten dance studios. 




There was a flash mob, too, led by Rick Garceau.
Miss Massachusetts, Gabriella Tavares, joined in the fun and helped to make it a special night for everyone.




It was a night when survivors were honored,


and those who lost the battle were remembered.


It was a night of sharing






and caring.

The evening concluded with special song,

a happy heart,
and knowing that together we can make a difference.
Sounds like a beautiful Valentine.

      was out casted and rejected even by my closet friends.
      i searched on-line to know and enquirer about cure for HERPES and i read
      someone testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 so i decided to contact
      the same herbalist Call Dr Osagie because i know that nature has the power
      to heal everything.
      i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry
      that he will help me with the natural herbs from God!
      after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and
      he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days!
      i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was
      cured!

During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from different doctors, few weeks ago i came across lots of testimonies from different people on a particular doctor on the internet called Dr okosun on how he cured various people from Herpes Simplex Virus and other diseases. i took the email address of this man from one of the testifiers advising anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured! , well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr okosun assured me that i will be cured,after two week of taking his medication as told by dr okosun, i went to my doctor for herpes virus check up and behold i was declared negative, i also waited for a week and went to another hospital for another check up to be be truly sure and behold i was still declared herpes negative, And i want to use this opportunity to tell those people out there secretly suffering from herpes or other diseases should contact dr okosun and get cured. you can get in touch with this doctor via email : drokosun55@gmail.com. You can also whatsapp him +2348124363791. Thanks once again Dr okosun god bless you
