NEW YORK - Three little girls who were photographed together two years ago in an image that went viral recently reunited for a new photo.
Rheann Franklin, Ainsley Peters and Rylie Hughey were first photographed together two years ago by professional photographer Lora Scantling. The image of the three of them hugging in a April 2014 photo was captioned "Sometimes strength comes in knowing that you are not alone!"
Scantling said, "I have never met 3 more beautiful little girls in my life, full of spirit and so happy and strong!"
The girl on the left is Rylie. She was 3 at the time of the original photo and beat stage 5 Wilms tumors (a form of kidney cancer).
The girl in the middle is Rheann, who was 6 when the original photo was taken. She has battled Muciod Spindle Sarcoma of the brain.
The girl on the right is Ainsley, who was 4 when the first picture was taken. She had pre-cursor B Acute Lymphligastic Leukemia.
All three girls are now in remission.
Due to the response to the original photo, Scantling has taken other photos of children who are battling cancer.
