Eric Shanteau - My Olympic Hero

There is not a single person who loves the Olympics more than I do. I ljust ove the idea of the world coming together and showing off the best of the best. But I am especially loving it this year! Last September I was honored to take Ryan & Hayley Shanteau's wedding pictures. Ryan's brother just happens to be Eric Shanteau who is swimming for the US Swim Team in Beijing. Eric is a true inspiration to me because although he is an incredible swimmer he is also a hero battling testicular cancer. I know Hayley through Camp Sunshine, an organization that sends children with cancer to summer camp and Eric is truly a hero for these kids to look up to.
