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

I want to use my platform as a way to raise awareness for a cause that I care about so much. A very close family friend was diagnosed with cancer just a few years ago as he was entering fifth grade. It was so hard to see his family struggle to take care of him. Knowing that I can use my platform as a voice for childhood cancer is such a surreal thought.
