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

I would like to be a voice for children fighting cancer because my very first dance teacher ever, lost her son, Mickey to cancer last year. Mickey was the same age as my little brother and he loved to dance too. My mom shared all the updates with me as they were fighting their battle together as a family and all I could do to help was to pray. His family worked really hard at trying to get him the treatments he needed and they continue to share what they learned to help other children. Being a voice for childhood cancer would help Mickeys’ story and many others be heard.
