If most pictures are worth a thousand words, this one is worth a million.
The photo entitled, “Sometimes strength comes in knowing that you are not alone” has one powerful message.
Three young girls, seemingly so peaceful, have one hardship in common — they’re all battling cancer.
Rylie, 3, just beat stage 5 kidney cancer. Rheann, 6, has brain cancer. Ainsley, 4, is fighting a form of leukemia.
The girls, now friends, never met before this photograph was taken. They now share a special bond.
Photographer Lora Scantling of Scantling Photography wanted to bring them together to bring awareness to the struggle children with cancer face every day.
The photo has now gone viral.
“I just wanted something that showed the strength and the bond and that they weren’t alone.”
