Flashes of Hope

While we were at Camp Sunshine, an organization called Flashes of Hope donated their time to photograph every child at camp along with their families.  Today, we received the pictures and I am proud to share them with you.  Flashes of Hope is a nationwide organization that takes pictures of children with cancer and recently just photographed their 15,000th child.  A donation of $25 allows them to photograph a child and his or her family.

Flashes of Hope photographs its 15,000th child!
Posted on September 10th, 2010
This month Flashes of Hope reached a new milestone. Since its inception in 2001, Flashes of Hope has provided free portrait packages to over 15,000 families all across the country! This summer alone, over 3,000 children were photographed at camps across the country. In 2010, Flashes of Hope will photograph 50% of the children diagnosed with cancer in 60 locations across the United States.
Flashes of Hope is a national nonprofit organization that creates portraits of children fighting cancer and other life threatening illnesses and raises money for pediatric cancer research. Families photographed receive a generous portrait package, all free of charge. The photographs, taken by award winning photographers, help children feel better about their changing appearance by celebrating it. For families of terminally ill children, it is especially important to have a portrait that preserves forever the bravery, grace, and dignity of their child.
