Three Little Cancer Victims Pose For Child Cancer Awareness

A couple of years ago three young cancer survivors featured in a picture that went viral and recently they reunited for a celebratory photo shoot.

Rheann Franklin, 8, Ainsley Peters, 6 and Rylie Hughey, 5, first met when they came together for a 2014 studio session with Oklahoma photographers Lora Scantling and Christy Goodger. The young girls were battling different types of cancer during that time.

The photo of the three girls, each dressed in vintage-style gowns and embracing each other, touched hearts around the world.

The girls meet again months later for another photo shoot after learning each was in remission.

"We decided to do it holding the original picture this year so everyone could see how much they have changed! All three girls are doing great and are still cancer free/in remission," she told.

She added, "We all love getting together! I love seeing the girls with each other! The bond they have is incredible and it's really neat that they understand that their picture has been seen all over the world and that they have made a huge difference for childhood cancer awareness!"

Ainsley, continues to be monitored through monthly blood work but remains in remission. Rylie gets scans every three months, but continues to get stronger. "She has left the hospital and now enjoys her days in Pre-K, gymnastics, dance and T-ball."

Rheann, the oldest of the group, permanently lost her hair from dozens of rounds of radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Her eyes also droop slightly because of where her brain tumor was located. "The good news is she is a happy 8-year-old with an active life. She loves to ride her bike, hang out with her school friends, and she loves to play with her sisters," Scantling said.
