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

I want kids to realize that it’s about learning to dance in the rain. Cancer is like a big storm and dance is the glimpse of sun peaking through, I want them to find that hope and hold on to it. Hope is very important part of life. I think you should always enjoy the little parts because they could end up being big.
