PROJECTS Dear to My Heart

“Flashes of Hope raises funds to accelerate a cure for children’s cancer while honoring the unique life and memories of every child fighting cancer.”

This will be my fifth year photographing with Flashes of Hope.

In preparation for the first session at Hasbro Children’s Hospital my intention was that I would do my very best to make these children have fun and forget that they were sick.  I was going to give them an experience that would help them feel special.

In my wildest imagination, what I was NOT prepared for was the fact that they would give me so much more than I could ever give them.  So. much. more.

I played with Angels on Earth that day and I was humbled as I witnessed the human spirit in all it’s glory.

Life took on a whole new meaning for me.

I left there inspired and full of hope and faith and love.  My life is enriched having been in the presence of each and every one of them.
