Why Angelina wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
I have had fellow peers who have been diagnosed with childhood cancer. Two years ago, my age group competed a dance dedicated to children who either passed away, survived, or are still fighting cancer. We had a class where we sat down and watched videos and learned of all of the children we represented. It was heartbreaking to hear each and every one of the different stories of children who have this horrible disease, and even more so to realize that it could happen to anyone.
