"I won’t lie and say I’m not nervous about dancing in front of others, but I am excited to participate in such a distinguished event that helps in the battle versus Cancer. Cancer is something that has affected at a personal level , it took the lives of two of my aunts ( Maria, Bertha) my grandmother Maria, and some children that I met when I visited St. Jude’s research hospital. I have made in a priority in my life to collaborate in any way to help eradicate this disease."
