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

I would love to be a voice for children with cancer. I have been dancing since I was 2, and one of my best friends that I danced with growing up was diagnosed with cancer. Her courage and strength to keep dancing although she was going through something terrible inspired me. That year I raised money through donations from ribbons I made and put at the dance studio for her. I would love to support more kids like her who are fighting cancer!
