Cancer does not make Flipped Bird happy but fighting it does. Enter Maya Thompson. You can not read Maya Thompson’s blog and not be moved in some way. The raw emotion of her heart wrenching words document her real time experiences and provide enduring legacy for her three year old child who valiently fought Neuroblastoma cancer. Although young Ronan (“Ro”) Thompson lost his battle with cancer last year, his legacy lives on through his mother’s words and The Ronan Thompson Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for a rare form of childhood cancer.
In the past year The Ronan Thompson Foundation has attracted the attention of several music and TV stars including Katy Perry, Bret Michaels and most recently Taylor Swift and Katie Couric. Taylor Swift was so moved by the emotional words in the blog she wrote a song from it and debuted it on the all-star Stand Up To Cancer telethon last month. It quickly went to number one on i-tunes and proceeds from sales of the song will benefit cancer related charities. See her emotional performance below.
