Following an extended career in graphic arts and print media, I felt as though I needed something more meaningful in my life. Shortly thereafter, I was introduced, as a volunteer, to Flashes of Hope ("FOH"), through the 2005 Big Shots/Little Stars event. As a fortunate mom with a life-long avocation for photography, the FOH mission of selflessly serving critically ill children and their families seemed like the perfect fit for me. I was honored, in 2006, to be named FOH's Cleveland Chapter director, leading the in-hospital photo shoots. Working with the amazing child life specialists and hospital staff members, I quickly realized that we were not just taking pictures of these remarkable children but providing, for them, the means to feel beautiful and strong again.

As the parents see their children smile, laugh and truly enjoy the photo shoots, we all seem to gain a bit of respite from the realities of our personal struggles. Returning to the hospital with portfolios in hand and witnessing the families' expressions as they see their children's beautiful images is probably one of the most satisfying feelings I've experienced in my lifetime. Coming to know these amazing children and their special families, I feel so very proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.
