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

I would love to be a voice for children with cancer because I love advocating for those who are struggling and hope and pray a cure is found soon! My grandpa was just diagnosed with cancer over Christmas break and it has been heart breaking for our family. I battle with a rare autoimmune disease and can relate to the struggles of being ill, constantly tested and at doctors, and no actual cure either. I would love to support all the amazing kids on their journey with their illness and do what I can to help raise awareness. Thank you!
