Nonprofit helps young cancer survivors explore photography at New England Revolution cabinet

FOXBORO — The Pablove Foundation is a national non-profit organization that helps children battling cancer. This week, their litter traveled to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.

The organization’s goal is to teach children with cancer to develop their creative voice through the art of photography. The Pablove Foundation is named after Pablo, a little boy who lost his battle with cancer.

Three young cancer survivors were able to take pictures of the New England Revolution in practice.

Eleanor Art is eight years old. She was excited to talk about the camera. “You can zoom in and zoom out,” Eleanor said. “Then you can have a really good one.”

Doriana Pierre is 18 years old and was able to share the experience with her father. “Because of all the backdrop and the sprinklers. I didn’t think I would ever do something like this. It’s fun,” she said.

Chloe Tierney had it all figured out and had the best time of her life. And while her parents were watching, they were also having a great time.

“I think it makes her so special to be here with the players and that they give her extra attention and can take pictures of them, up close and personal,” said Colleen Tierney, the mother. from Chloe.

It was a great afternoon for everyone in the practice session. Football stuff and group photos then made this afternoon unforgettable.

“They do an amazing job helping the kids,” said Pablove photography teacher Deb Hickey. “Give them cameras and just help their general well-being, kind of distract them and get them to focus on other things.

“It was an amazing day, super grateful to the Revolution, to Pablove. Great experience meeting the players and seeing the facilities. It was awesome,” said Peter Art, Eleanor’s father.

Photos taken by the three young girls will be displayed in the Pablove Foundation’s Shutterbug Gallery at Gillette Stadium during the Revolution’s annual childhood cancer game on September 17.
