Why do you dance?
I dance in support of the innocent children suffering from such a life-changing disease. It is a humbling and unique experience to watch our organization’s hard work directly benefit the needs of the clinic and its patients. As an aspiring physician, I am delighted to have the opportunity to interact the kids and spread awareness of their needs throughout the Louisville community. I dance in hopes that childhood cancer someday becomes a disease of the past.
