24 Amazing Photographs By Children Living With Cancer

By hosting both extended and immersive workshops, summer camps, mentorships, group classes, and more, Pablove Shutterbugs encourages children living with cancer to focus on their own creativity, not just their illnesses. The kids of Pablove Shutterbugs get their own camera equipment, which is theirs to keep after they complete the program. So far, participants include 150 pediatric cancer patients. Thanks to the Pablove Foundation (which Jeff Castelaz and Jo Ann Thrailkill co-founded in 2009 after losing their son Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz to a bilateral Wilms Tumor), we have the awe-inspiring work below.
