Friends of Karen
A Portrait of Strength, Hope, Courage and Love
A poignant and intimate interview by NBC National Correspondent Kate Snow with teen Laura Barajas and her family, focused on how their lives dramatically changed with Laura’s cancer diagnosis and how much Friends of Karen provides in both financial and emotional support.
The mission was to create a moving portrait on film using only our two-camera interview. It has been shown at multiple 2015 galas, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars of support for the non-profit to help families with a child diagnosed with a critical illness. (5:04min)
