Sound of Life

Sometimes the ones, who don’t have everything, give the most.

This weekend the youth group of the association “Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V.” (Aid for Children with Cancer) organized a charity concert in honour of the members who had passed away. They also wanted to thank their sponsors, family and friends for all the support they received and create awareness about the obstacles young people with cancer are confronted with in their everyday life.

I would like to quote Marcel, one of the members (currently in therapy). He wrote a poem which reflects what a teenager in this situation may feel (it’s in German):

Leben
Ein Mensch möchte leben,
wird es ihm im Leben einmal gegönnt?
Ein Mensch bestrebt nach Glück,
nach seiner eigenen Herausforderung,
wird dieser Mensch jemals glücklich?
Bestrebt nach einer Partnerschaft,
die ihn nicht zurück wirft,
sondern nach vorne bringt.
Bestrebt den Beruf einzuschlagen,
indem er den Menschen hilft,
indem er seine Erfahrungen teilt,
indem er zeigen kann das er das ist,
was er ist
dieser Mensch will Leben.

Marcel Fischer

Thank you for having me and sharing your love for life.

// Dani

The youth group offers young people with cancer, but also their siblings who have lost sisters and brothers through cancer, the possibility of an informal exchange of experiences and support.

Janna and Miriam together with Leo Club Frankfurt and Chris did a great job organizing this event.

The artists performing Full Faya OrchestraBanjooryVillian, Toni Leo, NeurathLos MonterosFlo2Soul and DJ Dommy Dean made the crowd swing & sing! And not to forget all the other people helping and working for free during this day.

Chris is taking care of the youth group since 1999 and doing a lot of crazy and good things for the kids and teenagers.

This is Kai. He is THE best. He knows everything about cameras, all the technical stuff I don’t even know how to pronounce. He came all the way from south Germany to shoot with me. We had a great time – we exchanged lenses, talked about colours, RAW & JPEG, perspectives – all the nerdy things photography freaks like us like to talk about.

One minute.

Oooh, how I love this picture.

Here comes the slideshow. Enjoy!

    Dani… du bist ein Schatz!
    Ich habe diesen Tag so genossen – dieses Ereignis mit dir zu “stemmen” war einfach der Hammer, und die Stimmung, die Musik, die Leute, das Wetter… einfach woah!

    Deine Fotos gefallen mir, wirklich, die Portraits haben Gefühl, die Momente haben einfach gepasst und du hast meinem 1.2/85mm ordentlich und lecker Futter gegeben.

    Falls du mal wieder einen Wingman an deiner Seite gebrauchen kannst, ruf an!

    Und an dieser Stelle noch mal ein ganz GANZ dickes Lob und Dankeschön an “Die organisierenden Grazien(tm)”, ich habe selten eine Veranstaltung in dieser Größe so geschmeidig verlaufen sehen!

    Auf bald… und weiter so!
    Kai
