I shot these pictures for a story in Sarasota Magazine in 2019 and just came across them again recently. They show Tony McEachern at the Team Tony Cancer Foundation, which he created to provide support for newly diagnosed cancer patients. Tony was (and is) an avid cyclist and athlete who was diagnosed with brain cancer at the height of his physical fitness. He responded by WALKING from Durham, NC to Sarasota to raise money for cancer research. During my morning at the foundation, the warmth and dedication of the people there was obvious and profound. Tony is a wonderful guy doing good work in the world; my favorite kind of story to tell.
