Year: Sophomore
Dancing for: Petra Essien
Bio: Cancer: "the disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body." Who knew that a single word could describe an event in which a single cell redefines an individual's life. This year I will be dancing in honor of my little cousin who means the absolute world to me. Recently they were diagnosed with a rare form of cancer which accounts for only 2% of ovarian cancers and within that percentage only 4-5% are juveniles. Personally, I feel as if cancer is one of those diseases that is easy to recognize, acknowledge, and forget when it doesn't affect you or someone you know personally. But, when it materializes into a loved ones' personal experience it becomes more than just the disease you learn about in Biology class or hear on television. Because of this, I will not only be dancing for Petra, but for everyone who has been affected by this disease. I want answers. I want treatments. I want more and more people to become aware of how many cancers are out there and how it affects people. I want everyone who is diagnosed to have an opportunity to beat cancer, so please consider donating to the Brian Piccolo Cancer Research Fund whether you or your family has been impacted by the disease or not. All of the money goes toward a great research initiative that aids in providing answers and treatments for cancerous diseases out there. Every penny counts, so donate as much as you can. You'll be helping a great cause. Feel free to share with your family and friends! Thank you so much; it really means a lot!
