Ronan. I don’t ever watch things on YouTube about you because it is just too difficult for me. There are so many beautiful things on there and for that I am forever grateful, but I leave them for other people to enjoy. Today was different. Today, something came across my way that I could not ignore. I sat and watched it all, sobbing while doing so. I always cry due to missing you, Ronan, but today I also cried because I was so moved by this darling girl and the way she took it upon herself to a voice for you and all kids who are dealing with cancer.

Talk about inspiring. Talk about touching. Talk about watching the world change right before my very eyes and knowing it is all because of you. The youth of today will be different as well as so many others because of you. I don’t know how the White House can possibly say no to our petition. We are almost to 25k signatures and for that I am beyond thrilled! You all really didn’t think we would stop at 25k, did you?! No way. We are going to keep this thing going and get as many signatures as we can until February 6th. Let’s blow this out of the water and give the White House absolutely no reason, to say no. The more signatures the better.

Thank you, Chloe for your amazing YouTube video of Ronan. Thank you for understanding at such a young age, the right things to fight for. I know Ronan is so proud of you, as am I.

Thank you all for rocking this petition. I could not have done it without you. Thank you, Woodddawg, for doubting me. You know the best way to make me get things done is by saying telling me I can’t do it. I love you for that.

xoxo

    Maya,

    I immediately sat and watched Chloe’s video. Oprah needs to see this (I loved Fernanda’s email to her) !!!! She needs to invite you, Chloe and Taylor to her show, to her magazine, to a special Oprah broadcast… about people who are changing the world, filling it with courage, grace, strength and love! Chloe … I am in AWE of what you created, of all the hours that must have taken, and of your beautiful, sensitive, brave friends… to share their hearts with the world. If you are our future the world is blessed!! and Maya, your beautiful boy Ronan is the heart of this movement of love and gutsy do it ness.

    I am a Canadian citizen and my husband is American… you KNOW he had no chance of not signing!!!

    with so much love,
    Valerie

    Oooh, Mayasmafia! I want one, too! :) I will wear it with pride!

    Great job, Chloe! When kids inspire us, it’s so much more powerful. The coming generation will change the world in the best ways, if they will all just stand up for what’s right the way Chloe is doing.

    I want to yell from the roof of my house, fly over the city in a helicopter with a massive bullhorn, shout into into every ear! Sign the petition, already! Just sign it! That 60 seconds of your life could NOT be better spent!! And if I feel that way, I can just imagine what the Thompson family feels. Blessings to all of you!

  7. I like how she used Taylor Swift’s Change at the end. Perfect song for this. We definitely need a change on this issue.

    Wow, what a beautiful video Chloe created. Brilliant smart beautiful young woman! She will help change the world, for sure. Can not wait to see what Woody will challenge you with next (of course in the most loving supportive way possible as he so clearly knows and loves you best!). Love to Thompson Land….rest a wee bit, mama! I know you need no reminders that you still are doing a lot of extra hard work keeping Poppy girl all cozy and snug!

    Maya, hi, it’s Chloe. Thank you so much for everything. You and Ro are my biggest heroes and hearing you say that he would be really proud of me means absolutely everything. Thank you for being you, thank you for showing me what true love is and how to be a rock star. Not only will we rock this petition, but we’re gonna kick cancer in the big ol’ BUTT!

    Holy shit! I went to bed last night, checking the numbers the last of, oooohhhh, I don’t know….20 times yesterday….and over 1,000 were still needed. Now it’s down to 24! Incredible! If anyone could make this happen, it’s you, Maya. God help anyone who tries to dissuade you from accomplishing something in Ronan’s name. God help anyone who tries to stop you, period. Can’t wait to see it in September!

    Hi Maya,

    So happy you made 25,000 signatures was watching the numbers go down. :). I can’t watch Chloe’s video maybe because I’m in Australia not sure but I’m sure it was meaningful & beautiful at the same time. Maya you just keep on RoRocking the world.

    Xoxo to all

--- OKAY HI. So, as you probably know I am a huge advocate in raising awareness and funds for childhood cancer. Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of our kids, with 46 kids being diagnosed a day and 7 dying a day in the United States alone. It receives next to no funding federally, and is swept under the rug because it is too sad. Well things have to change. The Ronan Thompson Foundation is a beyond amazing foundation in honour of Ronan Thompson who died at age 3. And through Taylor Swift and Maya (his mama) I've learned Ronan's story and become aware of the tragedy that is the world of childhood cancer. SEPTEMBER is childhood cancer awareness month and the colour is GOLD (official in HRM, HOLLA!🙌) and I intend to do my part. The #BeBoldGoGold campaign (created by Maya Thompson and Kassie Rehorn of the Ronan Thompson Foundation) is designed to spread awareness about this terrible disease in a fun way. Deck yourself out in gold and educate people, challenging them and your friends to do the same. This month I vow to do that... Through running. Throughout September, I will run as many races as need be to reach 50 kilometres (or 31.1 miles for all you American lovies) and spread awareness at each race. However, while awareness is great, funding is even better. So there will be a page set up where you can sponsor me throughout the month and support the cause. All money will go to the Ronan Thompson Foundation and the IWK Foundation to help kids locally and internationally, fight cancer. To learn more about it, go to www.facebook.com/chloesraceforgold or click the link in my bio. There will be a schedule, info and a place you can donate. Ronan, I am so sorry this happened to you. We will fix this broken world. #ronan #beboldgogold #theronanthompsonfoundation #iwk #halifax #fucancer #heshouldbehere Join us in the Be Bold Go Gold Challenge! Snap a pic of yourself all decked out in your gold and nominate some brave souls to do the same! @beboldgogold  I was nominated to do the #beboldgogold💛 and I nominate @mamamaya @knjoy and @woodythompson75. #rtf #empiregogold #ronan
