About the Event

CTM Group Photo

Capturing the Moment was started by Dr. Megan B. Nelson in 2017 to create a space to support, nourish, and empower cancer patients by providing free professional photography sessions for them and their loved ones. Dr. Nelson started this project after recalling her own experience with cancer and how she wished she had more pictures to document her journey. The photos help “capture a moment” in patients’ lives and create a snapshot in time that patients and their families can cherish for years to come. The photos capture smiles, tears, hugs, laughs, and many other memorable moments.
