Why Alyssa wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I want to be a voice for children who are battling cancer to help raise awareness to this horrible disease, and to encourage each and every one of them to keep fighting. These children still have their whole life ahead of them and deserve a cure to be found. No one fights alone.
