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

When I was 5 yrs old my friend Leslie was diagnosed with Leukemia. Over the last two years I have watched my friend fight the biggest battle of her life. I am so proud that next month she will finish her final treatment. She is so much stronger mentally than I ever will be physically as a dancer. I want to raise awareness for childhood cancer because no child should have to go through what my friend has.
