Some facts about my treatment:

I had a lot of finger pokes. They put cold patches on my port to draw blood. I took a lot of pills in my pudding. They put me to sleep in the Cujo room in Sick Kids.

What I want people to know about me

What my life was when I had cancer. How I got rid of it. Who helped me when I had cancer and after that.

My favourite day was

Going to camp and Sick Kids.

The worst thing about having cancer

Needles. I also didn’t like it when I couldn’t go to school because I was sick a lot. I couldn’t play with my friends.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Art teacher.

My message to other kids undergoing treatment

I know you guys are struggling in pain. But don’t worry it will be over soon. Fight the cancer!

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

I would go with super strength that would give me more muscle.

If I had three wishes they would be…

Get muscles, be the best artist, I wish I had three more wishes.

I’m involved with Coast to Coast because…

I had cancer and I want to help raise money for camp.

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.”
