Special Report: Sweet Nectar Society

Local photographers donate their time and talent to taking pictures of some of the valley's youngest - and sickest - patients
Professional photographers Brittany Wilbur and Carrie Anne Miranda are about to mark the second anniversary of the Sweet Nectar Society. The non-profit group's mission? To capture the hope, courage and strength of children undergoing treatment for serious illnesses, disabilities and injuries. They offer free photo shoots to families, then provide them with digital images and a leather-bound book of prints.

Wilbur - a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society "Woman of the Year" - says, "It's all the memories they have. You have to hold on to what you hold dear in life, and this is what we provide to families."

Miranda - who juggles a family of five with her own photography studio - adds, "
We can show their beautiful faces and smiles and laughter without seeing any of the sickness that they're dealing with."

CBS47's Zara Arboleda introduces you to the founders of Sweet Nectar Socieyt... and to two families who've taken part in photo shoots - the Gutierrez Family, whose three-year-old daughter is now in remission from an aggressive and rare form of cancer...and the Willes, who lost their young son, Hendrix, to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia this past spring.
