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

I lost my aunt (moms sister) to cancer when I was 4 so I never got to meet her. Her children were 2 and 6 when she passed so they never got to enjoy a life with a mom by their side. Not only did I lose an aunt, but my mom lost her sister, cancer runs in our family, it left an emptiness in our family, I want to inspire those in need and show them they are not alone in this fight. I want to share my story, thank you!
