In 2014, the families of Rheann Franklin, Ainsley Peters and Rylie Hughey shared an image of the three girls embracing each other. At the time, each girl was battling a different form of cancer. Franklin was diagnosed with mucoid spindle sarcoma, Peters was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and Hughey was diagnosed with bilateral Wilms tumors.
The original image, taken by photographer Lora Scantling, of Scantling Photography, quickly went viral. Scantling has done multiple photo shoots with the girls since then.
