Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

Email me your news. I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

Phoenix Children's Hospital along with Gold Sneaker Society is about not letting childhood cancer sneak up on another child.

Hi Jean Robb here, As many of you already know I have two very special kids in my life that have been effected by Childhood Cancer Our little Mia Foutz, who continues to amaze me with her strength and little Rockstar Ronan, who although he lost his battle continues to insprire others to fight.  Please join in the effort to STOP Childhood Cancer!


An awareness campaign for children's cancer using the "gold" color as a symbol to end childhood cancer for good. Join the movement!
Don't let childhood cancer sneak up on another child. Gold Sneaker Society is a movement to raise awareness globally for all children fighting for their lives with cancer and to spread the word about the devastating personal and financial impact that childhood cancer can leave behind for children and families.

13,500 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in the United States

1 in 5 children diagnosed with cancer will die.

Everyday, 46 school children will be diagnosed with cancer.

One in 300 boys will develop cancer before the age of 20.

One in 333 girls will develop cancer before the age of 20.

The incidence of invasive pediatric cancers is up to 29% in the past 20 years.

Pediatric cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among US children ages 1-14.

In 2009, only 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget was used for pediatric funding.

Young cancer patients often have a more advanced stage of cancer when first diagnosed.

The average age of death for a child with cancer is 8.

In 20 years the FDA has initially approved only one drug for any childhood cancer. Half of all chemotherapies used for children's cancers are 25 years old.

Physical and neurocognitive disabilities resulting from treatment may prevent childhood cancer survivors from fully participating in school, social acitivities and eventually work.

Cancer kills more children than AIDs, asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies combined.


Ronan Baby

In August of 2010 our beautiful baby boy Ronan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer. He passed away on May 9th 2011 in his mothers arms after an 8 month battle where he never gave up until he was told it was time to let go. This is his adventure. This is his life. This is his story. It will never end.

Rockstar Ronan Mission Statement

We are not your ordinary 501 (c)3. This is about so much more than just raising money. We want to change the world. We want to be the reason you wake up in the morning and make the most of you life. We want to be the reason that you stand up for yourself and don’t take no for an answer. We want to be the reason you are the best mommy, father, son, daughter, sister, brother, friend, lover, boyfriend, girlfriend, aunt uncle, grandma, grandpa, or ROCKSTAR that you can possibly be. We want to be the reason you live your life the the fullest because that is how Ronan would have lived his. And he never got the chance. Which is fucking bullshit. You are here. You can do anything. So DO IT! We are not here to raise a small amount of money for childhood cancer. But we are thankful for every penny that you give. We are here to raise millions and millions of dollars for a very big dream that we have. A dream that involves the best research, care and treatment that is possible to give to cancer patients and their families. Because it is what they deserve. They deserve to not feel like they are just another number, not just another statistic. They deserve to know that they matter and they are in the best hands possible, in every aspect of this horrific fight. This is us. This is for Ronan. This is for all the kids fighting cancer who deserve better. Who deserve the best. Who deserve to have a voice and to stop being treated like lab rats. Ronan is the reason behind this movement that is about to take place. He is the reason that we will continue to fight this fight. No parent should have to outlive their child. People need to start paying attention because as we have learned, Childhood Cancer, does not discriminate. It is the NUMBER ONE disease children in the word. It claims the lives of more children annually than any other disease – more than asthma, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis & AIDS combined. It can happen to anyone. Including the most beautiful, loving, happy, family…. like us. Ronan was our everything. We were his everything. It is not acceptable that we no longer can be together. Ronan fought this disease with everything he had and lived his entire life full of courage, laughter and love. As Ronan’s mama, I made Ronan a promise that I plan on keeping. I promised him that I would continue to fight for him until people start listening, survival rates improve, and one day, a cure is found. With your help, you can play an active role in this. It will be no easy feat: It is going to take an army of love and support. Ronan did not deserve to die. No child does. The fact that this is happening in this day and age is unacceptable. Thank you for visiting Ronan’s blog. Thank you for supporting us. Thank you for believing that there is more to life, than the everyday “stuff,” that we tend to get caught up in. Thank you for wanting to be a part this adventure. Miss you Ronan. Love you forever. I won’t break my promise.
Maya Thompson
Ronan’s mama

The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Phoenix Children's Hospital is the largest pediatric program of its kind in Arizona, providing complete care for children diagnosed with malignancies and/or life-threatening hematologic diseases.

The Center's many research partnerships, such as Children's Oncology Group (COG), give pediatric cancer patients access to the newest treatments and most successful protocols, which have helped improve cancer survival rates dramatically in recent years. Our participation in these national collaborations ensure we are offering the same treatment here that a child would get at any of the other top-notch children's hospitals in the country.

As the pediatric population in Arizona continues to grow, the demand for these services rise along with it. In response, the CCBD has built a large group of physicians who each specialize in a field of cancer and who practice at several locations throughout the Valley.
