I met Elissa on April 19th, 2018 at the Main Street Arts Festival in Fort Worth, Texas. She sat in a wheel chair near a music stage and was wearing a cannula to receive oxygen to assist her with breathing. I approached her to ask if I could photograph her. She agreed, then asked if I would like the cannula removed. I replied that I saw her in a wheel chair and with the cannula, and that's how I wanted to capture her.

Elissa is young. She suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and awaits a double lung transplant.
From her Facebook page,
"Treatments have come so far!!!
Someday CF will stand for “Cure Found”💜"
Thank you, Elissa, for availing opportunity to share. Kevin
