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

When I was 8 years old, I lost a classmate to cancer. I didn’t get to see him much. He was always at the hospital, but I could tell that he and his family were suffering in a way I could never imagine. I want to do what I can to make sure that no child and family will go through that again.
