powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer.
The portraits help children feel better about their changing appearance by celebrating it.
For a few moments, it doesn't seem like a hospital.
Children who haven't wanted to get out of bed are suddenly smiling & laughing.
For families of these children, it's especially important to have a portrait
that preserves forever the beauty, grace & dignity of their child.
Locally, each month since 2009, Wellesley based portrait photographer Roger Pelissier
has volunteered his time & donated his talents to Boston Children's Hospital
and used his camera to see beyond the devastating disease,
giving the children & their families a chance to take a break
from the routine of the hospital & medicine.
To see a child smiling & laughing,
when there isn't much to smile or laugh about, is an amazing experience.
Roger knows that kids with cancer are still just kids...
and parents of these kids know that you don't get a second chance
to capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
There is hope & strength in each extraordinary smile.
The photos are an everyday reminder of what matters most.
FLASHES OF HOPE partners with over 70 world-class hospitals throughout the US
and has photographed over 32,000 children.
FLASHES OF HOPE is committed to the advancement of pediatric cancer research.
