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

My cousin Gideon Thompson went through a horrible fight with brain cancer as soon as he turned 1. It came to the point where he almost died during surgery to get his massive tumor out of the back of his brain. In the waiting room we heard the beeping… Since then I have changed. I know so many cancer kids. I watch them get better and watch some slowly lose their life. I dance 24/7 and I want to really express myself for these kids. I volunteer and have become close with these kids. I want to do more.
