Why Abbie wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
Childhood cancer awareness, fundraising, and research has been close to my heart for a long time. My childhood friend, Gabriella Miller, passed away from a brain tumor at age 10. Ever since she got diagnosed, I made it a personal priority to do my part for Gabriella, the Smashing Walnuts Foundation (which Gabriella started), and all brave children going through similar battles. I hope to use one of my biggest passions in life, dance, to inspire kids everywhere to stay strong and keep fighting!
