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

I remember always running around, dancing, and playing as a kid. I was fortunate enough that some of my biggest worries consisted of what game I wanted to play and what flavor ice cream I was going to eat. I can’t even imagine being a young child who loves to play, dance, and adventure, and then being told I have to battle cancer. I am so incredibly inspired by children who fight cancer every day. They are truly the strongest, most courageous people on the planet. I have always wanted to use my art as a tool to inspire and teach others, and the ability to be a voice for children with cancer through dance is an incredible opportunity that I would love to be a part of.
