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

I have been dancing for a little more than eight years now, and I have been thinking how I could take something that I love to do, like dance, to help my community. I came upon this organization, and I realized this would be the perfect way to start. Knowing that I can do something to continue this research to prevent such a terrible disease means so much to me. A very special person to me had to fight cancer; fortunately, he was able to kick cancer’s butt. I saw the process that he had to go through, and I don’t think anybody should have to go through that, especially children. These strong children fighting cancer inspire me to become the best version of myself, and I want to inspire them back, letting them know that they can do anything.
