Rockstar Ronan

In August of 2010, Ronan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer. He died on May 9, 2011 in his mother’s arms after an 8 month battle where “he never gave up until he was told it was time to let go.”  Maya made her son a promise that she would continue to fight for him until cancer survival rates start to improve and eventually a cure is found.   The Ronan Thompson Foundation was created.

Childhood cancer is the number 1 disease killer in children.  Pediatric cancer only receives 3.8% of all cancer research funding.  Maya is out there finding the doctors who will make the most difference in fighting childhood cancer.  The Ronan Thompson Foundation is raising money to fund the research.  Maya meets with and helps other families with children who have neuroblastoma.  Maya has also created a list of things that we can all do to help and live like Rockstars.

I know that what I am writing here is a fraction of all that Maya and Ronan have done and continue to do to change the face of childhood cancer.  However, I do know for certain that Maya and Ronan are changing the world for the better.

Rainbows

As always I am still searching for rainbows.  Here is the one I found today. . .

Thank you to Glenda for suggesting I write about Rockstar Ronan.  Thank you also to Jessica who mentioned Molly Bears.  If you have any other organizations that you would like me to write about please let me know.
