    I have been reading for a long time, as a mother of 2 girls I cannot fathom the amount of pain that consumes you on a daily basis and for that the only thing I can say is I’m so very sorry!!!! I read something and it made me think of you so I wanted to share it with you…..

    I cried when you passed away.
    I still cry today.
    Although I loved you dearly,
    I couldn’t make you stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    Hard working hands at rest.
    God broken heart to prove to me,
    He only takes the BEST!

    My hope for you is that in time you have more peaceful days, more clear or light lipgloss days than not!

    Michele – if you have been reading a long time, then you know a poem about how “God” takes the “Best” (meaning Ronan is in “a better place”) is complete bullshit and isn’t going to lead to a more peaceful day, but rather will lead to anger that there is this perpetual need of religious persons to cast their faith on others as justification for why a very loved little boy is no longer with his family. While I appreciate the sentiment of sharing sympathy for a tragic and indescribable loss, trying to justify that loss does nothing but make the person offering the justification feel better.

      Hal- certainly I was in no way trying to put my beliefs on anyone at any point! I was simply stating that that made me think of her and her family. It does not make me feel any better I was just offering my sympathy to maya, Ronan, and their family. I personally do not pretend to know what happens to a person after they pass away. That was just my way of letting her know that I read everything she posts, cry all the time for her, not out of pity but simply because it makes me sad that any parent should have to go through what she and her family are going through. She and that amazing little boy of hers touched my life, I look at my children differently because of her, I appreciate every crazy, bad, good, wonderful, big, little thing they do because of her. I think of her often and read her writings and although I can not simpathize with her, I am simply sorry that she is going through this. My original post was not meant to hurt her in anyway and if it did, maya, I am from the bottom of my heart sorry. I was not trying to make anyone “feel better” by what i said, I don’t think I’d ever “feel better” if I were to lose one of my daughters. Hal, I am not here to debate with you. As far as your response, please don’t pretend to know me, know my beliefs, or what my intentions were for my post. It was meant for maya and Ronan and their family, not for you so i could really care less what you appreciate!!

    #Repost from @ronanfoundation If you've been tagged, you're it!!! It’s time to… ‪#‎BeBoldGoGold‬! Get your glitter on! We’re kicking off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month with a bang & a sparkle! Throughout September, we’re turning ourselves into spicy, gold human billboards for childhood cancer awareness and want YOU to join us! Welcome to the #BeBoldGoGold Challenge! 
You deck yourself out in your gold bling or glitter—jewelry, clothes, facepaint, you name it, you rock it. You head out into a public place. Talk to at least one person about childhood cancer—tell them a fact, like that 46 are diagnosed with cancer every day. The goal is to raise awareness, so talk to as many people as you can & encourage them to take the #BeBoldGoGold Challenge

Film/photograph your adventure, and tag us in it! We’re reposting submissions to our new #BeBoldGoGold Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. When you post your video/photo, nominate 3 people to carry out the challenge by tagging them. They have 48 hours after being tagged to get their gold on! Make sure to hashtag #BeBoldGoGold and ‪#‎RTF‬

At the end of September, we’re giving a prize to whoever goes all out and makes the biggest impact (aka raises the most awareness)! We’ll also have #BeBoldGoGold shirts available to purchase (link coming soon). If you would prefer to donate instead of (or in addition to) the challenge, visit: & share the link. 
The Challenge starts…NOW! #Repost from @firedaughterclothing
It's almost September! Childhood Cancer Awareness Month- this is my I think 4th year working with my absolutely amazing girlfriend @mamamaya to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer, which brutally stole her son Ronan.  I was introduced to Maya when my close girlfriend Sandra's daughter was also fighting for her life, alongside Ronan.  Mia beat her cancer but has severe radiation injury.  This horrible horrible thing brought us all together and we are determined to make a difference for all of our babies.  Keep an eye out over the next week or so.  It's time to Go Gold 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 "And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate...I shake it off, I shake it off." #pearl #gettingreadyfortimessquare #nycorbust #nycgoesgold #beboldgogold #rtf #shakeitoff @taylorswift @knjoy
