Why Jaiden Rose wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

After recently being crowned international junior miss kansas teen I decided i wanted to use my title to help bring funding and awareness for chronic/terminal illnesses and disabilities. being chronically ill myself i deal with and understand the struggles and daily challenges that these children face and feel i can be of great support and a mentor to others in a situation similar to mine. Because of my title i have a great reach to many different audiences and can have a huge impact on spreading awareness.
