Children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses often spend countless days in the hospital. Enjoying something as simple as a family photo shoot can be a welcomed distraction from constant medical procedures.
Flashes of Hope is an organization made up of volunteer photographers who take uplifting portraits of children fighting illnesses. The sessions and photographs are provided to families free of charge. These photographs do more than just capture a moment in time; they help these children feel better about their changing appearance by celebrating it.
Flashes of Hope gives each family an invaluable treasure that forever captures the grace, beauty, and dignity of their child. Families facing terminal illnesses rarely think about the importance of photographing these moments, as they do not want to remember the disease. Rather, Flashes of Hope excels at spotlighting the child’s bravery and courage through adversity.
SelectHealth recognizes the profound contribution of Flashes of Hope as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
