These Stunning Photos Taken By Kids Living With Cancer Will Make Your Jaw Drop

"Through a photo you can feel almost anything — laughter, pain, love, sorrow, loss and joy."

The Pablove Foundation is an amazing organization that teaches children living with cancer to develop their creative voice through the art of photography.

Kids learn how to use cameras and express themselves through 8-weeks of photography classes. Afterward, the prints they produced are sold online to help fund underfunded cancer research — to date Pablove has awarded $1,900,000 in Childhood Cancer Research Grants!

The organization was founded by Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz in honor of their son, Pablo, who passed away at six from bilateral Wilms Tumor, a rare form of childhood cancer.

So what kind of photographs are these kids taking? Based on the work done by Pablove's recently graduated Los Angeles class, pretty amazing ones.

Isabella, 13, likes photography because — in addition to helping her document her memories with her family — "it has helped me slow down and be more observant about the world around me."

Nadine, 20, thinks "photography allows you to notice the beauty in everything. It gives you a new perspective and makes you appreciate the little things that we so easily take for granted."

Sujay, 13, says that with photography "there are no rules. You're free to create whatever you like, however you like, whenever you like it. You never know what your result may be, and that's the beauty of it."
