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

Since I was born, I have watched my mom struggle with her brain tumor and her seizures. She’s the strongest person I know. It’s scary to watch someone you really love go through that. If I can make a difference for a child struggling with cancer, I will. If I could help just one child, it would make all the difference in the world! No one deserves to struggle with illnesses, and I wish I could take everyone’s pain away.
