Child ambassador for St. Bladrick's Foundation

PITTSFIELD - Hearing your child has cancer is something no parent ever wants to hear.

 

But one little boy has beaten the disease and is taking on a very big job.

 

Kellan Tilton a five year old who was born with Neuroblastoma cancer.

 

"I had a boo boo on my spin" said Tilton.

 

He was chosen to be the 2018 ambassador for St. Baldrick's foundation to serve as voice and face of childhood cancer. They are the largest private funder for cancer research worldwide.

 

Kellan's mom Elizabeth Tilton said "It's great that he can tell his story, it's great that he can be the face of kiddos. A lot of information that I was able to receive about Kellan's cancer was from the St. Baldrick's foundation."

 

Kellan loves being an ambassador.

 

"To help all the children and across the country with childhood cancer" said Tilton.

 

300,000 children a year are diagnosed with cancer and 1 in 5 won't survive.

 

"It's really important that we have this important research being done and St. Baldrick's is leading the way in cutting edge research" said Tilton.

 

Kellan doesn't let anything stop him from doing the things he loves like skiing, rock climbing, and playing hide and see with his friends.

 

"I go on double black diamonds and half pipes" said Tilton.

 

Students in his class are always willing to help him out with whatever he needs.

 

Kellan's kindergarten teacher Erin Peasley said "If he drops something they'll pick it up for him or they'll go and get it."

 

Kellans mom says he's proud of his story and everything he's able to do.
