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

I’m a childhood cancer advocate about a year ago. After a little girl that touched my heart (Mack) passed away from cancer, I decided to do something in her honor so I created a page (@moments.of.hope) to share stories about childhood cancer and send this kids personalized packages with the help of sponsors so they can have a better time in the hospital. Now I was inspired by what you guys do and I’m working on a dance video for Parker, a little girl who recently passed away for childhood cancer. I recently started dance and would love to be part of Dance Hope Cure to help more kids and give them a little Moment Of Hope
