When I lost half of my tongue to oral cancer in 2018, I never dreamed I could get well enough to make this audition video singing! This is my submission for Chicago the Musical, but I didn't make this video only to audition. I made it to inspire cancer survivors to stay focused on their dreams! With your help, I'm going to prove to you that our obstacles can become our victories. Cancer, scars, and disabilities are no match for our joy.
