Deadline: 7:00 PM EST - 14 June
I am looking for several pairs of moms and daughters in the
tri-state area for a story about breast cancer. The mom needs to
be a breast cancer survivor (in her 40s to 60s); the daughter
should not have breast cancer but is concerned about it, due to
her mom's history. Daughters need to be in their 20's or 30's.
We are looking for stories about how each daughter deals with
her mother's diagnosis and what she has done as a result; i.e.
Does she have a special diet to stay healthy and try to avoid
getting the disease? Follow a specific exercise routine? Give up
smoking? Breast feed her babies because this is supposed to
lower risk? Get genetic testing? Earlier mammograms? etc.)
Please note: Both mom and daughter must be able to come to NYC
for a photo shoot the first or second week in July (date to be
chosen shortly and it will be on your own dime -sorry!). Your
story and photos will be in a major health and fitness magazine.
Please send me your ages, brief outline of your story and if you
are available to be in New York then. Thank you kindly!
