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.
Julie has been involved with Flashes of Hope since 2010 and currently coordinates the photo shoots at CS Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor.
Julie lives in Wixom, Michigan with her husband Tom and two sons. A graduate of Central Michigan University, Julie has a background as a Recreational Therapist and is currently a full time mom. She stays busy with her children's activities and several volunteer positions.
In her free time she enjoys traveling, reading, exercise and spending time with family and friends.
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.
