It is a privilege and an honor to work with the families serviced by Flashes of Hope. As the New York Chapter Director I coordinate bringing professional photographers into pediatric cancer treatment centers to photograph the patients and their families. We also provide hair and makeup as well.
I am always blown away by the kids and their families. They are incredibly strong through trying times I hope none of us ever know. Although there are so many emotions very close to the surface, love is what always comes out. The amount of thanks and gratitude that we volunteers receive for something we do every day is such a reward.
The grace that the families share centers me until the next Flashes of Hope photo shoot!
Below are photos taken by volunteer photographer Greg Morris of me goofing around with a younger brother of one of the patients.
