Three years ago, these girls were fighting cancer. Now they have gotten back together to celebrate their health and their return to normal. The photos are taken by Lora Scantling as a tribute to her father, who was dying of lung cancer at the time.
The gold ribbon represents the awareness of childhood cancer. These girls are amazing!
In this photo, the girls are dressed similarly to the original and are each looking happy and healthy.
To Evoke Emotion
Scantling says she wanted to do something “that spoke a thousand words that would draw emotion.”
Post on Facebook
Scantling put a post on Facebook looking for little girls with cancer and she got three wonderful ladies for her project.
When the original photo was taken, Rylie was 3, Rheann was 6 and Ainsley was 4.
As her hair grows back, this little girl looks happy and healthy.
All three girls are now cancer free and ready to take on the world.
Like a Dragon
Rheann is quoted as saying, “cancer is like a dragon.”
Ainsley adds that “chemo is the prince.”
Rylie says, “cancer messed with the wrong princesses.”
