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

I know people who have fought cancer and it hurts me to have to see them go through that. I have also dealt with a chronic illness (lyme Disease) for almost 6 years and dance has really helped me through that. I want to be a voice and support and be an advocate for childhood cancer because I love helping kids, being a support system and fighting for a cause!
