At the beginning of June, we had the opportunity to shoot an editorial piece for Prevention Magazine about a Susan Warmerdam who survived Stage IV Lung Cancer when diagnosed at 47 years old. The cancer had been brought on by a gene mutation (EGFR), as opposed to the common cause of being a heavy smoker.
Because of her incredible strength, a complete overhaul of her diet and daily routine, and a combination of western and holistic medicines, Susan's tumors shrunk 30-70% just six weeks after initial diagnosis. She is truly an inspiration. Meeting her, you would have no idea that she has gone through so much. Very easy-going and fun to be around, she welcomed us into her home to take both candid environmental and more staged seamless shots.
