Flashes of Hope
Founded in 2001 by the parents of a child with cancer, they are a volunteer driven organization solely focused on children's cancer. With chapters in 55 cities, they photograph more than 50% of the children annually diagnosed in the United States.
Since its founding in 2001, they have photographed 64,533 children at hospitals and camps across the United States.
For too many families, the portrait is the last one they have of their child. Thousands of children are waiting for a cure while doctors are forced to use outdated and toxic treatments. Cancer is the leading disease killer of children yet childhood cancer receives only 4% of federal funding for research.
In 2009, they began funding research and have already raised millions of dollars through their Kick-program and other initiatives.
Flashes of Hope honors the courage of children with cancer; captures a moment in time and funds research so they will have the chance to create a lifetime of memories.
