mamamaya For the entire month of September, my Instagram feed is going to be full of awareness for childhood cancer. If you don't like it, see ya! If you do like it, feel free to repost. Awareness is such a huge part of changing things for the better. This is my life everyday, not just the month of September. I will forever be Ronan's warrior mama. I am never going to give up this fight. Take today and think about that little kid sitting in a hospital bed somewhere when they should be in school or playing at a park. What if that were your child, your niece, nephew, cousin, friend, etc... Would you still choose to sit back quietly and do nothing? I'm not here to be quiet. I'm here to make noise, to fight for a cause that deserves the attention and funding that it does not get. I'm here to be a lion mama to my son who will always be my son. Not even death can break our bond. #ronan #fucancer #beboldgogold #kidsgetcancertoo #hearmeroar #sorrynotsorry #goldisthenewblack 4h

They haven't responded to anyone asking, that I know of and the petition won't make them change their theme they spent hundreds of millions dollars on. @nanacantum 1h

mamamaya September kicks off childhood cancer awareness month. The awareness color is Gold. Please help us get the word out. I miss my son every single day and living without him never gets easier. There are so many kids out there who are fighting and deserve to be fought for. They are too little to do this alone. Please don't just look the other way because this is too sad, scary, etc... This is a cause that need awareness so badly. We can change this, but only if we work together. I will never get my son back and I have to live with that for the rest of my life, but I swear to fucking God, I will never stop fighting for him and the life that was stolen from him. Feel free to repost this. Change your icon picture to his beautiful face. Let's make this September our loudest one yet. I love you, Ronan. Everything I do in my life is for you. #ronan #fucancer #beboldgogold #kidsgetcancertoo #rebelwithacause 11h

mamamaya Welcome to the BE BOLD GO GOLD CHALLENGE 2015! Want to get involved and help us turn the world GOLD? Here are some ideas and guidelines that the lovies at The Ronan Thompson Foundation have come up with. Please help us make this September shine gold by being bold, brave and beautiful with us! Whatever you end up doing, please make sure to use the hashtag #beboldgogold

Post your submissions to: gogoldbebold2015@gmail.com
1. #BeBoldGoGold Dance Challenge:
-Deck yourself out in gold…the sparklier, the better!
-Turn on your favorite T-Swift jam, get your groove on & make your own personal flashmob! Dance like crazy at the store, in the park, at school or wherever you feel like spreading awareness. Bonus points if you lip synch… Tell random people why you are doing what you are doing, challenge them to do the same.
(Inspiration via Ellen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWWQmmuxwCM) -Film it! Encourage people to give even just $5 to RTF. Tag us! We’re reposting our favorites. Can we make this go viral?! Why? Because you CAN get dressed in crazy amounts of gold & dance wherever you want. And kids fighting cancer often don't have the luxury of being kids as a lot of the time they are sick and stuck in hospitals. Get out of your comfort zone, and draw attention to the worthiest cause of all! (Plus, who are we kidding? Random dance parties are the best). 2. Encourage businesses in your area to go gold for childhood cancer! Whether it is donating, displaying Who Is Ronan? cards, or letting you dance on their tables (that’d be awesome…). Donations can be made here: http://www.theronanthompsonfoundation.com/donate

3. Spread Ronan bracelets around! Chalk the sidewalk with childhood cancer statistics! Doing something super-awesome while dressed in your gold! Bonus points for pictures & videos.

4. Shop the cause: Get your gold on here!
https://www.etsy.com/shop/FiredaughterClothing?section_id=16346898

5. Blast this all over social media. Turn your social media icons gold, to pictures of Ronan or any gold cancer fighter you want. This is our chance to make the world hear us and we can't do it without you!! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

mamamaya So much yes. Today, is Women's Equality day. In our house, we are raising our boys to become men who respect, admire, and raise women up. They are being taught that girls are just as powerful as boys and should have the same rights. My daughter will always be told she can do whatever she wants in life as long as she works hard and is passionate about what it is she wants. She will know her voice is important and she will never be told otherwise. #ronan #fucancer #powerfulwoman #girlpower #thewordicantisnotallowedinourhouse #iamwomanhearmeroar #hero 6d

mamamaya Thank you @empirestatebuilding for once again choosing to NOT support kids with cancer. You light up for every cause out there, except these kids. This is once again so disappointing and disgusting. This is far from over as I'm not giving up. We will find other ways to honor the 46 kids who are diagnosed with cancer everyday, the 7 of them who will die, and the ones who have died like my son. We will do this with or without your help and it will be a beautiful thing. #ronan #fucancer #beboldgogold #empirestatebuildingsucks #rude #ourkidsmatter #achildslifeisworthmorethangold 7d

mamamaya This was on my Facebook feed from 5 years ago today. Ronan had just been diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. In a blink of an eye, our entire world came crashing down. Yes, these past few days have been amazing, but don't think for a second that I will ever forget the reason behind this all. It all started with a very sick little boy who died and had to leave his broken-hearted mother behind. Our story is not an easy one to read, but I am so thankful that I was brave enough to tell it and @taylorswift was brave enough to read it. I am so thankful for all of you who are still here listening and fighting with us all well. You all are so brave, too. In all honestly, I wasn't doing this to be brave and many people asked me to stop writing my blog, but I refused to listen. I continued writing because it was the only thing that felt right in my heart and Ronan's story deserved to be told in an honest way. I ignored the people who told me I was wrong, crazy, disappointing them, should be in an "institution,"etc... I let the people who walked out of my life and whispered behind my back, go. In the end, standing up for what I believed in has made me a stronger person. The heart is one of our most powerful tools and I am so glad I never stopped listening to mine. I miss my son everyday, but I find comfort knowing he is the one behind this all. #ronan #fucancer #beboldgogold #taylorswift #rebelwithacause #rockstarronan @ronanfoundation 1w

  •   ibjennyjenny It's difficult to look at Ronan and not be pissed off. I cannot even imagine the emotions that you must feel. What happened to him is bullshit and I am so glad you shared his story...I had never heard of Neuroblastoma until Ronan...how sad is that? I share Ronan's story every chance I get and I really hope someday soon they find a cure for this most awful disease. Ronan was beautiful Maya, the perfect little boy. 1w
  •   hillbillyheaven7 God Bless You and thank you! Thank you for sharing, for inspiring, for standing up for your son and your family!! Thank you for not listening to those folks! Ronan's story needed to be heard--people need to be made aware. I also thank Taylor for sharing! I would not have known had it not been for her and you the other night at the show. I pray that someday soon a cure is found and no other mother has to go through the pain and heartache you and so many other familes have and are going through!! I love that you have this blog going and that you share your thoughts with us all!! Ronan was a very special little man with the most beautiful eyes!! He has a very special mama, whom he watches over along with the rest of his family!! He is such a beatiful soul-- Hugs to all of you and my thoughts and prayers are forever with you all!! 7d
  •   kimmi3d You are making a difference. Ronan will change the world. Never doubt yourself. You wouldn't have so many followers if we didn't love and believe in you. 6d
