After weeks of careful preparation, we set out to capture the essence of Chasin' a Dream's mission. Armed with a vision to empower families facing life-threatening illnesses, our objective was clear: to showcase the personalized and transformative support provided by the foundation. Our collaborators, including Lori Griffith, the founder of CADF, and her dedicated team, played a crucial role in providing us with the rich material we needed to weave a compelling narrative.

The Visual Tapestry:

A project of this nature relies heavily on visuals that convey the depth of emotion and the resilience of those facing immense challenges. In addition to the captivating photos provided by Lori and her team, we were fortunate to collaborate with Vizmo Productions, whose photography expertise added another layer of depth to the storytelling. The result was a visual tapestry that authentically reflected the spirit of CADF.

The Heart of Chasin' A Dream Foundation:

At its core, Chasin A Dream Foundation stands as a beacon of hope for families grappling with the harsh realities of life-threatening illnesses. The foundation's mission to ease the burdens of those battling cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart disease, and other life-altering conditions is evident in the individualized assistance it provides. This is more than a mission; it's a commitment to promoting healing and instilling hope.

Lori Griffith's Dedication:

Lori Griffith, the visionary founder of CADF, brings a unique perspective to the foundation. With 18 years of experience in the healthcare industry, Lori witnessed firsthand the daily struggles faced by children and their families. Motivated to make a direct and lasting impact, Lori dedicated herself to building Chasin A Dream Foundation. Her belief in community and the powerful ethos of Locals Helping Locals® became the guiding principles shaping the foundation's trajectory.


As we reflect on the Chasin' A Dream Foundation project, we're reminded of the touching stories that unfolded during those two days of filming. The process was not just about capturing visuals; it was a heartfelt exploration of the resilience, compassion, and hope that thrive when communities come together. CADF is more than a foundation; it's a testament to the power of collective support in the face of life's most challenging circumstances.
