We're excited for you to join the Pablove Shutterbugs family!

Shutterbugs US Map Collage

Pablove Shutterbugs, the signature arts program of The Pablove Foundation, teaches children living with cancer to develop their creative voice through the art of photography. Learning photography concepts alongside other kids and teens undergoing similar experiences empowers our students to express themselves, exercise their independence, and practice new ways of seeing the world – all while having fun! Classes are provided for pediatric cancer patients ages 6-18 years old. All camera equipment is provided by The Pablove Foundation at no charge.
