8-year-old Finn Cunningham was diagnosed with cancer at a young age. But even with his sickness, he still managed to be selfless enough to help others going through similar conditions.

Finn did bake sales, and with only two raised $1700. We asked Finn about his bake sales, “We did the bake sale because it was summer and we could do it right outside of our house….there is a good four-way stop there,” he said. “I did bake sales ( for Seattle children’s hospital ) and the Big Climb ( To raise money for leukemia and lymphoma society) – At the bake sale, I sold Aromatherapy bundles, origami, Chocolate chip cookies, Black-bottom cupcakes, and zucchini bread,”.

We also asked about his experience going through the treatment, “Creepy …. because the machines looked creepy and looked like death machines,”. “I was treated for 3 1/2 years,”.  he told us, “Things were creepy…It was hard to take all the medicine and I had to have a tube in my nose to take it. My mom would put tons of kale and spinach down it.” 

Finn’s story can inspire millions of people, children and adults alike, to try to make the world a better place every day.
