Two-time Grammy winner Melanie Fiona will join Hyundai Hope on Wheels for the launch of its 17th year in the fight against pediatric cancer. Melanie Fiona will serve as the 2015 celebrity ambassador for the non-profit organization.
In her honorary role, Fiona will use her platform to bring awareness to this important cause by participating in launch event activities, actively engaging in social media conversations and meet with pediatric cancer survivors.
Hyundai Hope On Wheels works diligently to use technology and social media to connect families affected by the disease in an effort for families to understand that they are never alone. Last year’s campaign used the hashtag #EndChildhoodCancer. The goal of the Just One Wish campaign is to show the collective wish of a cure for pediatric cancer.
Melanie Fiona shared, “As a performer it’s imperative to give a voice to worthy causes, and I’m honored to help the issue of childhood cancer be heard at this year’s Hyundai Hope on Wheels kick-off event.” She continued with, “It’s remarkable that in its 17th year of fighting the battle against childhood cancer, Hope on Wheels shows no sign of slowing when it comes to finding a cure through groundbreaking research. We can all agree, one child fighting cancer is one child too many.”
