Why Jalynn Nikol wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I would love to be a voice for children fighting cancer because I have personally witnessed how tough it is to battle cancer.  I saw how my grandma battled, how hard it was on the entire family and I know how tough and draining this battle can be.  I can only imagine how much harder it is for children, many who just don’t have the energy to raise their own voices.  I would love to be that someone raising her voice on their behalf,  to bring awareness of their fight.  To bring awareness of their families struggles. And to hopefully be of help to raise funds for research, and to raise funds to help out the families.  I want to be able to encourage them with my voice, my persistence and with the art of my dance.
