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

I would love to be a voice for children who are fighting cancer because it is very dear to my heart. I have a friend who is suffering from a rare form of childhood cancer, and my grandmother passed away from cancer as well. As of right now, my friend’s case is stable and not getting worse, but I saw what she had to go through these past couple of years and I want to help in any way possible. No child or adult should have to endure that much stress, along with the treatments. Cancer has taken far too many lives, I hope to be a part of the generation that finds a cure for this horrific disease.
