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

Cancer is something that has came through my family more times that I would ever think it could be. I lost my great grandmother last September to bone cancer. My grandmother just beat breast cancer. My uncle has just been diagnosed with cancer in his lungs, brain, and prostate. I have seen, too many times, the struggles of adults around me and I can’t even imagine what a child my age or younger would be feeling. I would love to be a voice for children going through cancer. I promote positivity on my Instagram, and I am always reaching out to others commenting, liking, messaging posting and uplifting words. I have followers of all ages and abilities, and I would love to be able to do whatever I can to help those who need it the most.
