Seasons of Hope Calendar » The creative team of Kathie Austin and Matthew S. Field combine to produce a unique 2016 calendar that helps to create breast cancer awareness, to foster prevention, and to provide hope for women who are fresh to or from the battle with breast cancer. Austin's poignant portraits and Field's touching biographies tell the stories of twelve dauntless and inspirational women whose breast cancer diagnoses have provided each with an opportunity to fashion a lasting legacy for the people whose lives they touch. The Seasons of Hope 2015 Calendar is a daily reminder for anyone who has been directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer that, like a rainy day gives the seed impetus to fulfill its destiny, even a cancer diagnosis can provide the chance to make the world a better place.

Participant Submission

Survivors of breast cancer are special people. They are our mothers and grandmothers, and our and daughters. They are our partners who have faced one of life’s most stark realities and stared it down. These are the Seasons of Hope Calendar Ladies. Each of the Seasons of Hope Calendar Ladies has her own reason for wanting to tell her story. Some have a special interest like a book or an organization they want to support. Others simple want to inspire like they, themselves, were inspired. Regardless of the reasons, each of the Ladies’ stories is consistent with the Seasons of Hope Calendar’s objectives, “to create awareness, foster prevention and provide a source of hope for those women who are fresh to or fresh from the breast cancer battle.”

To be considered as a Seasons of Hope Calendar Lady, please send us an email by clicking “Contact” from the website menu and include the following information:

  • Name, address, phone, email;
  • Date of diagnosis;
  • Your story.

Following a consultation and if chosen, each Seasons of Hope Calendar Lady will have photo shoot with Kathie Austin Photography, receive complimentary digital images from the shoot and five calendars, and have access to our private Seasons of Hope Calendar Facebook group page where Ladies share their triumphs and tribulations and where updates about the project are regularly posted.

Share your story. We look forward to hearing from you.

Awareness. Prevention. Hope.
