Today we are honored to feature Flashes of Hope photographer Stephen Sherman, and appreciate his willingness to allow us to share some of his work with the CURE family. CURE Childhood Cancer is the proud Presenting Sponsor of the Atlanta Chapter of Flashes of Hope. Flashes of Hope is dedicated to creating uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
Stephen graciously shares his time and craft to benefit families who have been affected by childhood cancer. On why he is involved in the cause he says, “I guess I would say it provides me a way to apply my professional skills to a worthy cause. These kids and their parents are going though a lot. To bring a light moment, some fun, some smiles to their lives is something special..”
Stephen has experienced special moments and fulfillment being a part of this wonderful cause and recounts for us “On the most recent shoot, one little girl was too sick to get out of bed for a photo, so I photographed her in bed. Afterwards, her parents told me it was the first time she’d smiled in many, many months.
That kind of thing makes it all worthwhile.”
