Footloose and Cancer Free, an event that means so much to me!
Millions of people are affected by cancer every day. Many of them are just looking for some source of joy. Footloose and Cancer Free will be an 8 hour dance-a-thon to raise funds and awareness to the fight against cancer. In my young life, as a 17 year old girl I have encountered many people that have been affected by cancer. This ranges from family members, to teachers, to many community members.
The main reason I wanted to do this is because I have watched my uncle, grandmother and grandfather suffer from this disease. As I watched them in the fight for their lives, the only thing that I could see is their desire to be joyful! With our dance-a-thon people can not only cut loose and be footloose, but be a part of the fight to end cancer!
