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

I would love to be a voice for children that are fighting cancer. I am a very pationate person and dancer. I know so many dancers in our community that have passed away from cancer and it really is horrifying. I one day hope that we do find a cure for cancer. I know we will it’s just taking a lot of time, but until then I would to speak out for kids with cancer. Everytime I see a child that has cancer whether it’s someone I know or someone I see on social media the next time I take the stage I always dance for them. I could never ever imagine having cancer at such a young age and I really would just love to give back to the dance community.
