Boy with cancer Portrait by Flashes of Hope-Patrick SchneiderA national non-profit group, Flashes of Hope, photographs children who are facing serious health issues, in an effort to change how they view themselves. To date, more than 22,000 children have posed for portraits by skilled artists who know how to capture the spark within each child.

The portraits, taken by award-winning photographers who volunteer their time along with make-up and hair stylists, preserve forever the beauty, grace and dignity of the children and their families.

Allison Clark founded Flashes of Hope a decade ago, after her son, Quinn, was diagnosed with cancer.
