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.

Mark Watson

Ever since Mark first held a camera as a boy, he has always had a love of photography and continually finds himself viewing everything as a photograph. He started his studio in 1985, and it is now in its 26th year. When he first read about Flashes of Hope two years ago, he knew immediately that he wanted to participate. Mark volunteered at a shoot and was hooked. Last year he was offered the position of director and he is enjoying it immensely. Seeing the smiles of the children and their parents is something he keeps with him always.

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.
