"I'M GLAD I HAVE CANCER"

Every day, Blaise Barrelet battled cancer which he’s thankful for. Why? It led him to his burning purpose.... saving local families from losing a loved one to cancer. His passion now drives his new business CureMatch.

A story cover can pull our readers to become interested in a cause you passionate about. It may even land the next donation or investor for your chosen charity. Is a cover story the best way to attract our readers to become invested into your non-profit? With headline like ‘I’m glad I have cancer,’Rancho Santa Fe is an extremely philanthropic community with many retired folk who live there. Take Blaise's story for example. For cancer awareness month we designed an article to generate an emotive response and drive donations through storytelling.

WHAT DOES A COVER STORY INVOLVE?

All of our featured stories are professionally written. Our writer will collaborate with you to create an interesting story that delivers your family and marketing message in a sophisticated way. Our articles will use a professional photographer to provide high quality images and meet your approval as we develop your story. Keep in mind all deadline dates given will need to be signed off on as there is only ONE chance to proof your story. This requires fact checking only, not rewriting. Check the stories above to make sure our writing style resonates with you. You likely will only be able to choose from the final photos for your cover depending on when cover shoot is booked. Google docs is the format we use to fact check with a scheduled phone call, please let your writer know she needs to walk you though how to use it. We're happy to assist to make the process seamless and fabulous!

How it works

  • The cover story will be created by a professional writer and edited to connect with our Rancho Santa Fe readers.
  • Once your questions are completed and cover story is created, we will make a time to shoot the cover with our professional photographer. Please note it is very important to only share with us information you are happy to see published. Also, only submit any photos you are happy to see published. We will not have time to accomodate any change of heart with content submitted. If there is anything you feel on the fence about, simply don't submit it. Focus on what you are passionate about to share with Rancho Santa Fe.
  • Once your portraits are edited you will choose from final 10 for the cover. If you choose to order the first package, you will receive 10 print copies of the magazine and 10 polished photos and a framed copy of the cover
  • With the second package, you will receive a full commercial license to share and “repurpose” your story on social media, your website, newsletters and blogs
  • If you choose to buy the high res digital copies, you can make your family portraits into Christmas cards
  • The best part? If you haven't had a chance to update or write your about page, post your cover story instead. Save yourself hours and let us take care of crafting an 'about page' in the form of a story. Bam
