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

I’ve just recently heard about this organization, though I’ve been active in finding a cure for a while now. For the past few years, I’ve been involved in “Dancer’s Fighting Cancer” presented by Alex Swader. I’ve performed in their show up until the very end of its run. I’ve continually fund raised time and time again for these wonderful children. I’ve watched some kids beat this horrible sickness, however I’ve also seen many die. Seeing that changes you. We must find a cure. We must.
