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

Two years ago, one of my closest friends was diagnosed with cancer. This was a few years after my grandpa passed away from cancer. So many people in my life have been impacted by cancer. This disease has caused people that are extremely important to be in so much pain. I love dance with a passion and would be honored to use my love of dance to make a difference in an area that is so important to me.
