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

I would like to be a voice for children fighting cancer because I think it is important that we, as young adults and teenagers, use the voices we are given. Standing up for something you believe in is something that means a lot to me; I would love to have the opportunity to use my voice to ensure that children fighting cancer know they are not alone in their battle. As dancers, we tell a story with our bodies, not our mouths. It is an incredible way of storytelling, and I’d love to share my passion with others and show children fighting cancer how strong they truly are.
