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

I want to be a voice for children fighting cancer and an ambassador for this amazing organization because I want those brave children all around the world fighting cancer to know that they are the strongest and most beautiful human beings, and to never let that awful disease bring them down! I want them to know that there is always hope and to never give up. Through dance, I hope to inspire the children who don’t get the same opportunity to dance as I do. Stay strong! ???
