My favourite day was: When Cinderella came to visit during a blood transfusion. I got to learn how to sit like a princess.

I’m involved with Coast to Coast because: Tour for Kids supports the camps and they are my favorite places to be. When I’m at camp, I’m happy

The worst thing about having cancer: Not getting to see my brothers much. Not going to school when I was sick. Not being able to eat or play with my friends a lot.

Our Featured Ambassador

This is Josh Nelson – a childhood cancer survivor. He knows about facing all the challenges of childhood cancer:

“I know first-hand how it feels to be a prisoner in the hospital and endure the surgeries and the endless needles and treatments. I know how it feels to lose my hair, throw up regularly and watch other kids around me earn their wings. I lost a part of my childhood that I will never get back. I know how it feels to look different and to be different. That’s something that I wouldn’t wish for any other kid to go through, and that is why I do what I do.”
