When my neighbor Amy Green (who started the Atlanta Chapter in 2005) told me she was moving from Atlanta, the first thing I asked was "who is going to take over as Chapter Director of Flashes of Hope?" She asked if I would be interested in coming to a photo shoot to check it out and I was immediately hooked.

I expected a photo shoot to be sad, but instead found an energy that is contagious. We transform a conference room in the Aflac Cancer Center into a photography studio and open the door to anyone in treatment. We've photographed kids as young as 6 weeks old up to young adults. Some children are not feeling well but try to smile to make mom happy. Others are budding fashion models who know exactly how they want to be photographed and light up the room. Many of the kids come in with baldheads or attached to their IV poles. Others are in different stages of their illness. All are incredibly strong!

We have fabulous photographers. These talented men and women will clear their schedules to come out and photograph the kids. The memories they provide are priceless. The same make-up artists and photographer assistants arrive month after month from all areas of Atlanta to spend a few hours with the children.

We shoot monthly at Scottish Rite, Egleston and Hughes Spalding Hospitals which are part of CHOA. In the summer we are invited to shoot at Camp Sunshine. It's a fabulous oncology camp where kids can just be kids for a week in the summer.

"Our goal is to photograph every child with cancer until a cure is found". I look forward to our photo shoots every month, but would love to have no more kids to photograph. Let's find a cure!
