Meet 2023 Ambassador Martha: A Legacy of Courage, Compassion, and Conviction
For seven years, #TeamMartha was the rallying cry of a devoted community — family, friends, teammates, caregivers and even those who learned of her story from afar — who supported Martha Riedel in her battle with cancer. It symbolizes a life lived with courage, determination, and relentless zeal for all that she loved. It’s who Martha was.

Meet 2023 Ambassador Jonah: A Rare Gift
The best gifts are the ones that make us smile and fill our hearts with joy. When we are lucky enough to receive such a gift, we find ourselves filled with gratitude.
Jonah is this kind of gift — to his family, to his friends and to those he meets every day. Despite having faced childhood cancer, he is, in his mum’s words, “the most kind, inclusive, loving, welcoming, forgiving heart while also being the hardest working person you’ll ever meet.”
It doesn’t seem to add up—Jonah has every reason to be discouraged, defeated and even angry because of the impact childhood cancer has had on his life. But when you meet this survivor, you can see that childhood cancer doesn’t define him and you can’t deny that he is a gift. This is Jonah’s story.

Meet 2023 Ambassador Hanna: A Lesson in Rising Above the Storm
Life can be unfair. Curveballs, challenges, and heartaches do not discriminate. Even for the nicest people you know.
But there’s a popular quote that promises, “rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine.”
Meet Hanna. She has embodied this quote for 29 years, rising above the unfair hand she was dealt to feel the sunshine on her face.
Meet Hanna (no extra “h” at the end please).
