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.

Sherri Mitchell-Snider

Sherri was named Co-Director of the Nashville Chapter in 2015. Sherri began her volunteer work in Nashville working in Special Events with the Monroe Carell, Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, which she continues to do. She became involved with Flashes of Hope based on her strong affinity and compassion for children and families dealing with cancer gained through her own personal experience of having a child with leukemia many years ago. One of Sherri's strongest memories of that time was the amazing strength and courage that she saw in the children battling with cancer - and a wisdom beyond their years. Creating special moments and memories for children and families facing similar challenges through her involvement with Flashes of Hope has a special meaning to Sherri. Previously, Sherri had a successful career in executive recruiting as a professional recruiter with a large executive search firm. She holds a BA in Educational Psychology from Mississippi State University and an MBA from Georgia State University. In addition to her volunteering, Sherri enjoys playing guitar and singing in her spare time. She lives with her husband in Franklin, Tennessee.

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.
