The Truth 365 is a ground-breaking, grass-roots documentary film and social media campaign designed to give a voice to all children fighting cancer. Here, you can find a collection of quotes, videos, pictures, and other media relating to childhood cancer and its victims.
Emily James is just your typical little three year old princess. She loves nail polish, frilly dresses, and, when she can get her hands on it, mom’s lipstick. What makes Emily unique is that by age three her golden [brown] locks were long enough to be made into a wig for a child with cancer. As Emily states in the video, “just cut some off and give it to a kid”. What an incredible lesson to learn from a 3 year old, when we have lots of something - don’t hold onto it, give it away to someone else who needs it more. Her favorite movie is “Tangled” and she is especially fond of her Rapunzel dolly, which is why ‘Dolly’ got a hair cut too. When Emily said she would let Uncle Matthew cut her hair, she insisted that he would cut ‘Dolly’s’ hair first.
Emily’s mom and dad told her about donating hair wigs to be made for kids with cancer. They sat down and explained to her that to donate her hair, she would need to cut it fairly short, and that it would be a long time before she had long hair again. They looked at pictures together of little kids with no hair, they looked at pictures of wigs and they also looked at shorter styles - and she still wanted to make the donation. It probably didn’t hurt that in the final scenes of Tangled, Rapunzel is sporting a pretty cute bob. With that in mind, the two of them, Emily and ‘Dolly’, booked an appointment with ‘Uncle Matthew’.
Olivia Wise captured the world when a video of her singing “Roar” by Katy Perry during treatment for a brain tumor went viral this fall. Here’s a video of her singing “Thousand Years” by Christina Perri and goofing off with her family.
Joshua, who was diagnosed with leukemia in February but is now in remission, appeared alongside the Love Song singer at the House Of Blues, Orlando, Florida, on Sunday night (December 15th, 2013) wearing a ‘be brave’ T-shirt, which is the name of his campaign to spread awareness about children with cancer.
Bareilles described Joshua as ‘one of the bravest little angels I’ve ever met in my whole life’, adding: ‘You guys are just going to fall in love with him, the way that I did. (x) (x)
Please Like and Reblog if You Agree that Amelia is Beautiful! Today we visited Amelia in the hospital where she has been stuck for nearly three months. Not only is she fighting an extremely rare case of lymphoma in her brain but she has to struggle with the awful side effects from steroids, Methotrexate and other toxic treatments.
When we were taking these photos, Amelia was very self conscious about her puffy cheeks. Her mom tried to tell her that she was beautiful but Amelia didn’t seem to believe her. So will give Amelia your objective opinion? If you think she is beautiful - inside and out - please like and reblog this photo.
Also she was reading the book “The Fault in Our Stars” right before she was diagnosed with cancer. Ironically the book is about a young girl with cancer and “chipmunk cheeks” from her treatments. Please help us to share this picture with John Green. We think it would be fun if he were to see this image.
