    There is no God, I can truly say that.

    Because everybody says that God put everything on Earth for a reason, and we just have to look for it.

    But there isn’t a reason for cancer. There can’t be a reason for something that comes into kids and teenagers and even adults and takes their lives away. If there is a God, he’s fucked up for ruining the Earth.

    If there is a God, he should give us a cure for cancer.

    Dr. Joe is a psychologist, but she often writes how she doesn’t believe in mental illness, which makes me wonder why she went into this career? Probably because she is empathetic since her child died.

    Feeling grief or depressed are 2 different emotions. I used to be very depressed because I was living with a physically abusive parent, but that disappeared when I left home at 17. But Maya your grief will never disappear because you can never see Ronan grow up. I heard an expression once, “When you lose your child you lose your future.” This sounds awful but I think it must be true. Worse than losing a spouse, parent, or friend.

    I absolutely adore Dr. Jo, and this blog post. Most especially because I work in the mental health field and see this all the time. So frustrating but so glad that there are people like her, and you and Ro, working to change things. You all inspire me everyday!

  5. The world would be a better place if people were a bit more like Dr Jo xo

  6. Thanks for sharing Dr. Jo’s post. FU Cancer!

    #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
