Some facts about my treatment:

At the age of 6 a family friend introduced us to Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation and I was shocked that kids could get cancer. This made me decide to help by spreading the word and raising money.

What I want people to know about me

No matter how old you are you need tell people your ideas and someone will listen. Raising awareness of this cause inspires people to get involved and make a difference.

My favourite day was

Riding my bike across the finish line at Tour for Kids. Being apart of the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation fundraiser, Strut for a Cure. The day that my school hosted the Inside Ride. Lastly the funny memories of the first SNKCR in 2008.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a medical doctor to provide the ability to help those who are ill when I grow up

If you could have one superpower strength, what would it be?

The ability to fly so I can explore the world.

If I had three wishes they would be…

My first wish would be to heel and cure the world of any cuts, bumps, bruises or illness. My second wish is to stop all political issues like war, poverty, racism and environmental problems. My third wish would be to force everyone to see how wonderful life is.

I’m involved with Coast to Coast because…

…of Lisa Kunow, who rides in Tour for Kids. She inspired me to get involved. I now fundraise and ride in Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation’s charity events.


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.”
