"Despite facing the relentless challenges of undiagnosed Crohn’s disease and recent breast cancer, my love for dance has remained unwavering.

"In Dancing in the Rain, I share my deeply personal story, which I hope will offer solace and inspiration to anyone navigating life’s storms.

"I want to remind you that no matter the challenge, the human spirit can prevail, and that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. Don’t get bitter, get better! I cannot wait to share my dancing journey but also everything I’ve been through.”
