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

I have been dancing just about my whole life, and I love it with all of my heart. When I found out about Dance Hope Cure, I just fell in love. One of my really good friends just found out she was cancer free about 2 years ago, and I remember all the pain she felt – surgery after surgery fighting for her life. I was with her the whole time, worried about what was to come. I want to help others stay strong and spread a positive message – especially doing what I love most in the whole world.
