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

I would love and appreciate it if I could become a voice for childhood cancer for many, many reasons. For one, two girls at my studio have lost parents to cancer and if children are losing the battle to cancer also, that is just heartbreaking. Just imagining seeing a child facing pain and feeling miserable or down. That should rock anyone’s world. Also, children’s lives should be filled with joy and happiness. Not treatments and hospitals. Plus they should never be worried about whether or not they will see their friends and family the next day. I believe that if everyone in the world stood up against both childhood and adult cancer it can be beaten, cured, and demolished.
