This evening I had the honour of shooting for West Coast Karma. Melanie Varney is a local artist and amazing mother who had 3 children in 1 year; twin girls Indigo and Ocea and son Joey. Ocea was born with Beckwith Wiedemann meaning she has 600x more of a chance of getting cancer than the average person. She had to have surgery on her tongue at a very young age but is powering through! Melanie draws all her own designs and silk screens her images onto shirts for children and adults along with shoes. Her product not only looks amazing but does amazing things. With every $60 she makes she will send a free shirt to a child undergoing chemotherapy and for every purchase she donates money to Beckwith Wiedemann Research.
Models : Isaiah, Indigo, Ocea, Joey, Kaitlyn + Melanie
Melanie is building a Facebook page this weekend and will be opening her own Etsy Store soon! In the mean time seek her out on Facebook or Instagram under Melanie Varney.
