“Flashes of Hope”

The “Flashes of Hope” photography project has a simple goal: “photographing every child with cancer until every child is cured.” Currently at the Health Museum, “Flashes of Hope” is a series of images created by teams of volunteer stylists and photographers who worked with children to create special photographs. Some children posed with a family member or friend, others with one member of their medical support team.

“Museum visitors will be able to see the bravery, grace and dignity of photographed children that are fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in ‘Flashes of Hope.’ These professional photos turn a challenging and changing time in these children’s and families’ lives into a moment to celebrate who they are,” says Whitney Schovajsa, manager of marketing and communications at the Health Museum.
