National Youth Ambassador

Elizabeth, 13

"Beauty comes from within the heart"

On August 18, 2011, I became one of 43 children diagnosed with childhood cancer that day. I was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoblast Lymphoma, a cancer that affects white blood cells in the blood. I am proud to say that I am a pediatric cancer survivor. Pediatric cancer is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with, but I am strong. I am powerful. I am brave, and I can do hard things! Although I had lost so much, I never ever lost HOPE. Hope kept me strong. Hope helped me stay positive. Hope was always my rainbow. To others out there fighting this same fight, I ask you to believe in hope, and I know it will get you through the hard days

I am so honored to be a Hyundai Hope On Wheels National Youth Ambassador because I believe making cancer better for kids all starts with awareness. I look forward to this amazing opportunity to share my story and create more awareness. More awareness can lead to more funding and more funding can lead to more research. And research is the key to finding a cure for kids like me.
