Do you have a passion for childhood cancer advocacy? We would love for you to apply to become a SkiFast Foundation Ambassador.
Ambassadors represent the SkiFast Foundation and have a passion for advocating for childhood cancer research.
I met Campbell a few years ago on a trip to Spain. That was the same year she had begun treatment. I never really knew/understood what treatments and procedures children fighting cancer went through. Campbell opened my eyes and made me want to tell other people about her story. It makes me want to help educate more people who were in the same position as me a few years ago. By being an ambassador I believe I can help continue to spread more awareness by word of mouth, social media, etc.
I want to be a voice for children fighting with cancer because Campbell is my childhood best friend. She is one of the strongest people I know and I love that she is such a good role model for others. Her positivity and strength are admirable and I want to support her! Also, in my eighth grade year I had a tumor but through successful doctoring I was able to get through it. I want other kids to get access to the care that I did.
I’ve experienced the impact childhood cancer has on the kids, of course, but also on their families, their friends, and everyone they’re around, and I’ve seen this two separate times. I want to use my voice for something powerful and help to make a change for children fighting cancer!
Being a part of Ski and Snowboard Club Vail with Campbell has allowed me to see the tremendous impact of childhood cancer and the courage of those who fight it. Both as a friend and hopeful future medical provider, I believe that more than 4% of cancer funding should be allocated to pediatric cancer research. I want to be a part of the fight for more funding, for Campbell and for the 15,780 other kids under fourteen who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Very recently in my life I have started to notice how many people so close to me have unfortunately been diagnosed with cancer. You don’t realize how horrid cancer can be until you know someone fighting for their lives. I can't begin to imagine the battle which so many have to fight, but I am willing to help in any way possible. As an Ambassador of the Ski Fast Foundation, I want people to feel the purpose to fight and never to feel like cancer is bigger than them. I want to be the voice re-stating the stronghold of a support system. I want to make the battle easier, more forgiving, and most importantly let all cancer patients know they are not alone. I want young children to feel they have so much to live for and can always count on this amazing foundation for help and support all the way through this relentless and lengthy process.
Although I haven’t seen Campbell in a few years, I admire her strength and perseverance in fighting this terrible disease. She is a strong role model to all and as a result I hope to be a part of increased funding for childhood cancer. Every kid no matter of financial ability deserves a chance to live.
As my best friend, Campbell has been a huge part of my life for the last several years. Seeing how she has continued to enjoy and engage in life gives me so much confidence that other children with cancer can do so as well. I want to be an advocate for childhood cancer and give children opportunities they wouldn’t typically have while enduring or recovering from treatment. Cancer should only be a roadblock in life, not a way of life. It’s critical that we still inspire dreams and goals in affected patients, as I believe that has helped Campbell tremendously.
I have fought childhood cancer and I would love to be a voice for other kids and help out.
I would like to be a voice for children fighting cancer because I hope to spread awareness about how little funding pediatric cancer receives in comparison to other cancers, and I also want to help kids with cancer receive the care and financial aid that the Ski Fast Foundation provides. The Ski Fast Foundation does a great job of helping cancer patients financially and makes the fight a little easier, so I would love to use my voice to help these kids who deserve more than 4% of cancer funding. Campbell has already spread a lot of awareness about her own experience and story, and in doing so has become a positive role model for many people including me. I may not understand how hard the battle with cancer is but hope to help other kids to the best of my ability.
I remember feeling that everything happened so suddenly with Campbell: her calf was hurting and then in the blink of an eye, her long blond hair was gone. I was overwhelmed and in shock, but she was so strong and ready to take cancer on. During this wild situation, she never lost her dedication and desire to help others. When she was at her weakest, she prioritized the others with a big, bright smile on her face. As I strive to be as strong as Campbell, I want to help advocate for childhood cancer. Children need to be able to grow up and chase their dreams and cancer shouldn’t have the power to take that away from them. I would love to do whatever I can to help these children that deserve more than 4% of cancer funding reach their full potential.
I would love to advocate for childhood cancer, to try and fight for more funding for pediatric cancer research. Campbell is an amazing role model, and truly the strongest person I have ever met. I want to help kids that are battling cancer know that they are not alone, and to educate them about this amazing foundation.
Growing up in Vail Colorado is like growing up in a small bubble. You get to know your peers, teammates, teachers, coaches, etc... very well. Campbell is two years older than me but over the past couple years, I have gotten to know her personally. I have grown up with a chronic disease that nobody could understand. When Campbell was diagnosed, I felt like I had someone I could reach out to because she could understand how I felt. Campbell continues to impress me and show me real strength. Everyday, she shows me how to persevere and stay strong while keeping a smile on her face. Being an ambassador for the Ski Fast Foundation, I feel like I can help kids find their mentor like Campbell did for me.
Campbell has been an important person in my life for many years. Growing up around her and watching her turn into the kind, strong and amazing woman she is has been a blessing. Watching her fight not only her own cancer but fight for other kids with cancer has been inspiring to me. Childhood cancer is extremely prominent and will continue to effect so many families across the world. It is unacceptable how little recognition childhood cancer receives. I want to be an ambassador because I want to advocate to change the system and get childhood cancer the recognition, funding and research it deserves. I want more for Campbell and all the other kids out there fighting this horrible disease.
When I think of Campbell, so many things come to mind: kind, funny, selfless, smart, strong, and above all, a fighter. From being classmates, to teammates, to close friends, Campbell has become a role model to not only me, but to so many others, especially those affected by childhood cancer. I want to assist her, and the others within that community in any way possible. Childhood cancer is a hugely underfunded and under-researched disease. They are worth more than the 4% of funding they are receiving, and their voices must be heard. Being an ambassador for the Ski Fast Foundation, as well as being an advocate for childhood cancer research is a way I hope I can help Campbell, and others that are affected by childhood cancer.
I would like to be a voice because Campbell has taught me so much about what it means to live life to the fullest. She is my biggest role model and and reminds me to smile every single day. She is the strongest person I know and childhood cancer should not stop anyone from accomplishing their goals and having their dreams come true. I want to give back to the community just like Campbell because she has given back to me so much, and I want to support her and other children fighting against cancer as much as possible.
Being an ambassador for the Ski Fast Foundation is taking part in something greater than myself and supporting the movement to impact and educate the world about childhood cancer. Campbell and her foundation has not only inspired me but many in the athletic community to help create change for kids with cancer. I aspire to be apart of the action Campbell has created, to reach out to those who believe in a future with adequate funding and cures for childhood cancer. While supporting those fighting to purse their goals and dreams in sport.
When I visited the Philippines 2 years ago on a mission trip I was shocked to see how many of our patients had progressive cancer and the damage it had on their bodies, their lives, and their loved ones. It always stayed with me how much it affected their lives, and then when I became a Pediatric ICU nurse I saw it even more personally as I cared for children with cancer and their families. I’ve had multiple patients who had been given this terrible diagnosis and have inspired me and touched my heart with how they are so resistant and find the joy in their day even when they’re fighting cancer. I want to spread awareness about and raise support for every person who has to live with this diagnosis so they know they have support and will never fight this alone.
I have known Campbell for a couple years now and have become really close to her and know how important it is to put childhood cancer first. I would love to be an ambassador and help her stand for childhood cancer funding. Her showing me what it truly means to stand by this really wants me to be apart. I want to advocate for childhood cancer first. It just really hurts me knowing that they're barley doing anything. That is not fair at all. Campbell and all the others deserve everything more funding!
I have had a lot of experience with cancer in the past even before meeting Campbell but since meeting her childhood cancer has become and very prevalent and important thing in my life. Campbell is one of my best friends and the brightest light in my life. She is strong, kind and beautiful. She fights so hard for childhood cancer advocacy while also fighting cancer herself and inspiring others do be a voice as well. I want to support her in her fight while also raising awareness for childhood cancer. This foundation is going to help so many children in their fight and help Campbell with hers.
Campbell has persevered through this unexpected journey with pure grit and grace while helping other kids battling cancer continue the activities they love. Campbell has not only increased my awareness about the lack of research funding that pediatric cancer receives, but also inspired me to become an advocate to make sure that more funding is allocated for pediatric cancer. I want to see the medical breakthroughs that are needed to drastically improve the current treatment options and I know that the Ski Fast Foundation is starting the conversation and asking the hard questions to make sure they happen.
Childhood cancer is currently a very prevalent issue that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. I would like to take part in raising the awareness and bringing the funding to be more than 4.
About 3 years ago, one of my friends Campbell found out she had cancer. At that time I had never known anyone who had cancer. This came as a shock. Campbell has shown strength throughout her fight and she has also shown compassion to so many others. She has a personality that lights up the room but she also has grit. I want to raise awareness and be a voice for children fighting cancer because it is not something anyone should do alone and most people don’t know anything about how hard they fight.
A couple of years ago, a friend of mine passed away from brain cancer. She was one of the hardest working, kindest, and most genuine people I knew. Seeing my friend’s family go through the pain of losing their daughter and knowing that parents and families go through the pain of losing their children every day because of childhood cancer makes me want to fight and advocate for more than 4. Over the past three years, our community has come together to create fundraisers and raise awareness in her memory, which has been absolutely incredible and inspiring to see. I want to keep fighting for more awareness to the low level of funding that research for childhood cancer receives to build a better place for those affected by it and spread love to those who have been.
I want to be a voice for children fighting cancer because I want to bring awareness to the fact that kids get cancer too. Pediatric cancers receive less that four percent of government funding, and the outdated, toxic treatments can have devastating longterm effects on pediatric patients. These kids and their families need to know that they are not alone in their fight and that they have support, even once their hair grows back. I want to help these kids return to their passions, and reach their goals!
I would like to be a voice for children fighting cancer because it is important to let them know they are not alone. Childhood cancer has been on the rise the past few decades and its crucial to spread awareness that children have cancer too! There is a lack in funding for pediatric cancer research and the skifastfoundation can help fund and support many children with cancer. Campbell's actions have inspired to want to be apart of this community, to help those fighting to accomplish their goals.
I became passionate about childhood cancer last year when I found a young fighter named Ava Blaser on Instagram. Her story inspired me and made me want to fight for kids like her. My passion really became intense when Lily Weaver passed away. She was such a light in my life who motivated me everyday. When she passed I was so angry and I wanted to do anything and everything I could to help these kids. Since then I have been advocating a lot and volunteering as much as I can. I found Campbell a few months ago and she has become a friend of mine! I believe kids and families affected by childhood cancer deserve better. Childhood cancer needs to be talked about more than it is and I want to make that happen. I want to fight for these kids as best as I can.
