In Their Own Words: Farful Foolong from Oolong Panshoo
The V Foundation is successful thanks to the contributions of many: donors, corporate partners, our incredible Board and Scientific Advisory Committee and the amazing researchers to whom we award grants. With “In Their Own Words,” we sit down with key members of our team to learn more about their commitment to the V Foundation and their personal desire to put an end to cancer. In this edition, we chat with our friend Farful Foolong from Oolong Panshoo!
The V Foundation: Tell us a little about yourself, Farful.
Farful Foolong: I’m Farful Foolong from Oolong Panshoo – I saved my planet from Grey Bubble-Goo
But now that I’m here on Earth I can see – there’s lots of kids that could use help from me
This Yuckity-Uck has found its way in – and done really yucky things to my friends
But that’s why I’m here, my purpose you see – to get rid of UCK and to shout VICTORY!
TVF: What are your favorite things to do when you meet a new group of kids?
FF: Oh, that’s when I’m the happiest – I’ll take them on a trip
We’ll travel through the Universe – aboard my Bubble-ship
Uncle Nick will tell my stories – while I give hugs and cuddles
And at the end of our first journey – millions and BILLIONS of BUBBLES!
TVF: Are there special things you do to cheer up someone you visit in the hospital?
FF: That’s a very special question – that doesn’t have one answer
See every day is different – especially with cancer
Some days I dance and sing and jump and plant a happy seed
While other days I sit and hug and fill a comfort need
To me they’re both important – one is to the other
I take the lead from those who know – the Daddy and the Mother
TVF: Why are you so passionate about helping put an end to pediatric cancer?
FF: I have such a friend, someone I hold close
Who came down with something, not good I suppose
It made them feel Yucky and Ucky and Blue
And I said to myself “GOSH, WHAT CAN I DO?”
So I cheered them up, I played all around
I picked them up, when they were down
And then I was asked to tag right along
And that’s when I found that “SOMETHING” that’s wrong
The Yuckity-Uck had found its way in
And did really yucky things to my friend
But now that I know that Yucky is there
I know I can fix it – BUT HOW? BUT WHERE?
See this is how my journey to find a cure began
With VICTORY over cancer, YES we WILL and YES WE CAN!
TVF: What would “Victory Over Cancer” look like to you?
FF: Thousands and Million and BILLIONS of BUBBLES!
EVERY DAY! In EVERY WAY! That’s ALL I CAN SAY!
