This photographer makes cancer-fighting art that gives kids who are battling cancer a chance to see out their wildest dreams. Children dream of being doctors, bakers and even superheroes and while some have the chance of living out these imagined futures, others need the hope these aspirations bring to drive themselves forward.

Jonathan Diaz is a photographer who gives cancer-fighting children an opportunity to dress up in costume, let their imagination run free and feel special through his 'Anything Can Be' series. After the inspiring photo shoot, Diaz takes the images and uses Photoshop to recreate the fantastical backgrounds.

These images evoke many feelings of sadness, as some of these children passed away soon after their dreams were lived out. However, they are also inspiring as they provide joy to these children and remind them that anything is possible.
