Some facts about my treatment:

At the time of my treatment I was the only person with Spinal Muscular Atrophy being treated for ALL

What I want people to know about me

Each tattoo I have is dedicated to a person that was close to me and has now passed away.

My favourite day was

When I was granted my wish to Disney World.

The worst thing about having cancer

Seeing so many children die.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to open my own business and part of the profits I make I want to donate back to cancer care and CH-5 where children are treated.

My message to other kids undergoing treatment

Every day is a battle and in order to win you got to fight.

If I had three wishes they would be…

Open my business, donate lots of money to cancer care, end childhood cancer

I’m involved with Coast to Coast because…

My best friend, Marisa, passed away from cancer and we both admire what Coast to Coast does.

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.”
