    “I am not sure what I want to be when I grow up, but I just want to grow up.” If that line right there cannot rip the heart out of every person who hears it….well they just might not be human at all.

  3. It is completely unacceptable that any child should ever have to wish to just grow up. I am so angry at the facts of pediatric cancer! Everytime I hear or read how no progress has been made in decades and that of the billions of $$ that is raised every year for cancer, nearly none goes to kids, I just feel sick. Watching that video, hearing the voices of those kids that have probably lost their fight, hearing them say “I just want to grow up” “I want to be a mom” “I want to be a good dad”, and knowing they most likely will never get a chance, just kills me inside. The tears rolling down my face are unending!

As you can imagine, it was a very emotional thing. We as board members/friends at RTF decided it was time for the little seal logo to go. We needed something that really spoke to who Ronan was/is. This is what our amazing friends at Fervor Creative came up with after many meetings with us and many do overs. (pro bono might I add because they have such beautiful hearts) I think they nailed it this time as it shows the beauty, strength and bravery that Ronan had, in such a simple way. How no matter what, you always keep walking up that hill and fighting, and even in death, you wont stop fighting for a world that so badly needs to be fixed which is the world of childhood cancer. Looking at this makes me proud, it makes me cry, it makes me strong. After everything Ronan went through, he always held his little chin up with such dignity and pride. At 3 years old, he was such a little man who never felt sorry for himself or let what he was going through get him down. He was my greatest teacher in life and will continue to be as I carry him with me in everything I do. I love you, Ronan. I will never stop fighting for you and this fucked up world of childhood cancer that everybody just seems to ignore. We will change this, because of you. I hope you all like our new Ronan Thompson Foundation design. @ronanfoundation #ronan My favorite place to be on a Friday night. #poppy #ronan #fucancer #fridaynightsnuggles #mybabe It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. #ronan #myneighboriscrazierthanyours #thisgoesoneveryday #neighborhoodproblems #movingtoiceland
