(CNN) If most pictures are worth a thousand words, this one is worth a million.

Credit: Lora Scantling/Scantling Photography The picture is entitled, “Sometimes strength comes    in knowing you are not alone.” It’s a powerful message on a photo of three young Oklahoma girls who are battling cancer.

Three-year-old Rylie just beat stage 5 kidney cancer, six-year-old Rheann has brain cancer and four-year-old Ainsley is fighting a form of Leaukemia.

Click each name and you can leave a message for each girl on their Facebook page.

The girls, now friends, never met before the photograph was taken.

Photographer Lora Scantling of Scantling Photography wanted to bring them together to bring awareness to the struggle children with cancer face every day.

The photo has now gone viral.

“I just wanted something that showed the strength and the bond and that they weren’t alone.”

    The photographer is evil for exploiting cancer children. Yeah, st.jude may get a few donation due to this picture, but the photographer is going to become well known because of it and I doubt any profit the photographer makes will go toward the cause.
