"Last year was our first Dance Marathon. Kiana was battling Wilms Tumor, a form of kidney cancer, and was about 2 to 3 months into treatment and not one person treated her differently because of how she looked. She had the time of her life. She was not 100 percent, but she danced and played with 110 percent of her heart. She amazed us that day and showed us what true inner strength was. We are very happy to report that at this year's Dance Marathon, she is in remission."
