We have a follow-up on a story we first brought you back in April.

You'll remember a powerful picture of Rylie, Rheann, and Ainsley, the three girls from Oklahoma all diagnosed with cancer. They hadn't met prior to this photo shoot, but the photographers said they bonded instantly.

The photo of Rylie, Rhean, and Ainsley went viral after it was shared and liked on Facebook. Their mothers say they got well wishes in all different languages and well wishes continue to come in. 

We have good news to share. All three girls are now in remission. 

We gathered two of the girls in our studio. It was just the second time since the photo shoot they had met.

While each of the girls is in remission, some are still going through treatment including speech and physical therapy. I also spoke with photographers Lora Scantling and Christie Goodger who say the photos of the girls and staying in touch with the families have certainly renewed their purpose of capturing memories.
