SCRANTON — Timmy Walsh will show photos through his Camera For A Cure (CFAC) at NOTE Fragrance, 401 Spruce St., during November’s First Friday Scranton.
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Walsh will also offer information regarding the disease. Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer of both men and women. Raising awareness about lung cancer, along with its risks and stigma, is as important to Walsh as helping those afflicted with and the loved ones of those dealing with the disease.
Camera For A Cure was created by Timmy Walsh at the age of five, with his first show/sale at the age of six. Understanding the severity and the lack of funding for lung cancer after his aunt was diagnosed with stage 3A, Walsh knew that he had to do something to help. Walsh created CFAC and has been raising funds for nonprofit organizations and illness stricken families since 2008.
Now, at the age of 13, he continues his quest to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer. Walsh is an Olyphant and Dalton resident, attends Wyoming Seminary Lower School and is a Boy Scout with Troop 57 out of North Scranton.
