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

I would like to be an ambassador for Dance Hope Cure because I want to find a truly meaningful way to give to others through my passion for dance. My older cousin is a cancer survivor and was lucky enough to find a donor match from my younger cousin. I witnessed how courageous both of them were during their challenging time. I also look up to my mom who supports me in every aspect of my dancing and she was a bone marrow donor for a one year old baby. She was very brave because she helped another person, someone she didn’t even know. I hope I can follow in her footsteps and help other kids.
