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.
Michele was named Chapter Director of the St. Louis Chapter in 2013. After earning her photography degree, she worked in both commercial and portrait studios before opening her own business in 2012. A native of St. Louis, she volunteers regularly at her children's schools and has also served on the board of several local non-profits.
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.
