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.
In April 2008, Carla became the Chapter Director at Pittsburgh's Children's Hospital. Her son, Daniel, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in October 2006, and is responding well to treatment. Through Daniel's treatment, Carla met several families touched by Flashes of Hope and was inspired to bring the program to Pittsburgh. Carla started her career as an accountant, working for Arthur Andersen, CIGNA, and Lordi Consulting.
However, after Daniel's diagnosis, Carla switched her focus and is now a freelance writer, specializing in writing for children. Carla graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a BS in Accounting and Finance.
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.
