What We Do

Our mission is to photograph every child until there is a cure!

Every year, Flashes of Hope provides SMILES and HOPE to 5,000 children battling cancer through direct services and funding research in 50 cities, nationally. With support from sponsors, we have been able to host free, monthly, professional photo shoots in over 120 children’s hospitals and at special events, giving families an enduring image of their child’s courage, beauty and dignity. Additionally, we have raised over $1 million per year to fund lab research of rare and underfunded pediatric cancers, supplying hope for the future.

Flashes of Hope photo shoots have a birthday party atmosphere that provide families with a bright spot in an otherwise difficult time. Sponsorships allow us to give every family a mounted portrait, a set of prints and a digital photo gallery, as well as a Happy Pack, containing comfort items that address basic personal needs and provide distraction from the monotony, isolation and anxiety of an extended hospitalization and illness. Being one of few outside organizations with the ability to provide direct services to children in our partner hospitals, we have the unique ability to meet the needs of a child and family at one of their most vulnerable moments.

Interesting Info

We have photographed over 3,000 children In the Charlotte area who are battling life-threatening illnesses.
In 2019, we were proud to contribute $1,000,000 to find a cure for children with cancer.
