Directors

Children with cancer are smiling today at a Flashes of Hope shoots. Our dedicated volunteer chapter directors coordinate photo shoots within the nation's top hospitals and at special events for children with cancer. Whether photographing one child isolated in a bone marrow unit or a hundred kids having fun at summer camp, it's an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

Amy Spelman

Amy has been directly involved with cancer research for the past 10 years.
She serves as Research Manager of the Integrative Medicine Program at the
University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. In her work, she has found
that kids are kids, regardless of their health. They play and have fun and
are able to understand their illness and why they are in the hospital. After
receiving her MPH and PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Texas
School of Public Health, she is excited to combine her professional
interests in pediatric cancer and survivorship issues related to disease and
treatment with her love of children.

Hands on head

The children often request to be photographed with special friends – in this case a stuffed bunny. Children are also photographed with parents, siblings, hospital staff and even fellow patients. This sweet image was captured at All Children's Hospital in Tampa, Florida.
