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 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.
