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.

Leah joined the Louisville Flashes of Hope chapter in 2013, alongside long-term Chapter Director Jon Dubins. As the Program Director at Kids Cancer Alliance, her passion for pediatric oncology patients is what drove her to become involved with Flashes of Hope. After seeing how powerful a portrait session can be, she was hooked. Later that year, Jon and Leah worked to expand the chapter to serve the Lexington, KY area. They were dedicated to bringing the Flashes of Hope program to as many kids as possible through their work at both children's hospitals. It was a natural fit and has been a wonderful partnership. When not at work, Leah enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, and reading.

He is very involved with various Childrens Charities and volunteers as a counselor and companion at two summer camps for children with cancer in Kentucky Indian Summer Camp and Camp Quality Kentucky. Jon is also on the board at the Childrens Hospital Foundation and serves as Secretary. Jon is thrilled to be bringing Flashes of Hope to families in Kentucky, which is a perfect complement to his day job, as a pilot for UPS.

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.
