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

Dance is truly my passion. I have been in and out of studios, because dancers are not able to encourage one anothers success. I believe that the dance world needs a positive outlook and encouragement, especially for those with cancer. The gift of dance is beautiful. If it was easy, everyone would do it. Dance truly correlates with cancer. These children fight every day and use their love of dance to convey emotion and their feelings or as an outlet. It would be an honor to represent these children and to be their voice. I have experienced within my family and have seen close up just how much cancer can affect families and loved ones. I would be so proud and so excited if I were chosen to be with this program.
