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.
Michigan Chapter Director Sophia Garner lives in Brighton, Michigan with her husband Duane, daughter Alaina, and son Evan. Sophia has been teaching first grade for ten years. In her spare time she enjoys playing soccer, running, spending time friends and family, and playing with her children.
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.
