  • Hometown: Port Coquitlam, British Columbia
  • Year of Diagnosis: 2012
  • Diagnosis: Leukemia ALL

My message to other kids undergoing treatment: Ask the nurses to count to 3 before they poke you…it makes it easier.

If you could have one superpower strength, what would it be: To make all the sick kids feel better

If I had three wishes they would be:

  1. Get a dog
  2. Meet Taylor Swift
  3. To find a cure for cancer

I’m involved with Coast to Coast because: I enjoyed meeting the some of the riders in the past. My family was impressed with the dedication and commitment from each rider. We appreciate their passion, the hours they give up training, and their fundraising efforts to raise money for childhood cancer. It’s because these riders CARE and will MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Every hill they climb, every province they visit and every dollar they raise directly benefits children like me. We are grateful!

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.”
