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

I would like to be a voice and advocate for raising money towards a cure because of first hand experiences. I volunteered at Howard County General Hospital this past summer and was exposed to children and adults battling cancer. It saddened me that there was no actual way to help them. I would like to contribute and be a small part of something that the future holds, finding a cure.
