Solving Kids’ Cancer’s Junior Ambassadors are a group of 6-16 year olds whose philanthropic efforts help create new and more effective treatments for children with the most challenging childhood cancers. They deserve to be in the spotlight for their commitments and passions to bring change to the childhood cancer community. Throughout the month of April, we are proud to introduce you all to this inspirational group of future leaders.
Meet Jr. Ambassador, Finn Kennedy. (My niece, who never had the chance to meet her brother/my nephew, Hazen, who passed away from pediatric cancer before she was born.)
What do you want to do when you grow up?
” I want to be a lawyer because the world needs good lawyers.”
Why did you decide to become a Jr. Ambassador for Solving Kids’ Cancer?
“Because I feel like everyone should have a chance to be a kid, have fun and change the world and I want to help sick kids to have that.”
What do you want your efforts to do?
” I want this money to go to researchers who try to invent medicines using expensive technology.”
What do you think we can all do for children that are fighting cancer?
” We can encourage them to stay happy. We should work hard and do our best to let people know that there are children who really need help.”
“the measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.”

bunny ponders how it is that
just last week
he was out in the open fields
rounding up cabbages, eating tall grasses, chasing bugs, free as the wind, and making merry,
only to find himself working in the restroom of a local establishment
from 9 to 5
nowhere near as exciting
and not a tall blade of grass to be found.
