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

My life has been touched by cancer many times and in many ways. I have had seven family members diagnosed with cancer. Only one has survived, and she is my mom. I feel very grateful to have my mom. I know how much she loves me and cares about my health. It makes me think about children less fortunate than me. Children who have to fight such ugliness as cancer are such an inspiration. I want to be a part of something bigger than me where I can help to make a difference in other children’s lives.
