Why Sophia wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
I would love to be an ambassador for Dance Hope Cure and a voice for childhood cancer because I know many people around me that have been impacted by cancer. A 5 year old in my hometown was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, and she was so young and barely even knew what was going on. My neighbor and friend was also diagnosed with brain cancer. It was one of the most devastating things because she was so smart and talented and had such an amazing future ahead of her. Being a voice for childhood cancer would mean so much to me because it helps some kids who can’t always be the voice for themselves. I want to be able to help as many kids as possible and doing that through dance is such a great opportunity. A big thank you to this organization so giving kids and teens a way to help with something so important, while also doing something they love.
