Some facts about my treatment:

Been off treatment since March 18th, 2008 and feeling great!

What I want people to know about me

If my cancer comes back I’m going to punch it right in the head with an uppercut

My favourite day was

Was my trip to Canada’s Wonderland

The worst thing about having cancer

Having to go to the hospital and getting a needle

What do you want to be when you grow up?

A superhero…so I can fight bad guys

My message to other kids undergoing treatment

Fight hard and you will get better

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

Have shooting things come out of my arms

If I had three wishes they would be…

To go to lasertag, to go on the Disney boat, make it so the kids wouldn’t get sick anymore

I’m involved with Coast to Coast because…

My family and I have been ambassadors for the 3rd year now because we have seen the difference these fundraising efforts make across the country. Together we are making a real difference.

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.”
