On October 16th, 2014, I did a same-day shoot and edit to help a friend of a friend, raise money to support his wife's recovery from a rare brain disorder called: Normal pressure hydrocephalus.
One of the things that stood out to me in this shoot was Rick's bed, which had turned into an overflow desk for all the medical and insurance paperwork he had become consumed by. The symbolism of your partner unable to sleep in their own bed, and being replaced by the medical paperwork that is in part of many reasons she is not there. It just broke my heart instantly.
But now 2016 #TeamTrishWilliams has been a success. From the aid of family, friends and strangers afar, the GoFundMe page raised enough money to get her the care she needed. Today Trish is back in her bed and taking courageous step to regain a sense of normalcy.
Here is a wonderful interview with both Trish and Rick, talking about their journey and thanking all who helped along the way. From the wonderful podcast, Zen Parenting Radio Episode 285
