If I could have one superpower strength it would be: Ice powers like Elsa from Frozen

My favourite day was: When I visited my Nanny’s house in Nova Scotia and we had a big water fight.

I’m involved with Coast to Coast: To help raise money so that other kids who are sick can have access to the charities like I did and still do.

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.”
