Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) is a fetal disease that kills two times the number of infants each year that SIDS does, but few people have ever heard of it.Â A client of mine from years ago called me and asked me to photograph inaugural TTTS Race for the Cure 5k here in Seattle.Â So this rainy Sunday, I took my family down to the event.Â I'm sure the turnout would have been better if it had been even a little nicer weather, but what can you do? You can see a slideshow of the images I took here.
This image sets the stage.Â The race was sponsored by Saturn and you can see the rain drops!
Some hardy souls getting ready for the race

The race winner.Â You can see a little how the rain played havoc with the photography - highlights bleeding into the darker areas because the rain on the lens is refracting light!
A VERY appropriate sponsor - Talking Rain!
Another sponsor - Luna energy bars.Â Doesn't my daughter make a lovely hand model?
Evergreen Healthcare was the title sponsor and one of 13 neo-natal facilities in the country actively working on a cure.
