Cierra McCauley

Cierra McCauley was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma when she was just six years old. This brave little cancer survivor is now giving back in a big way to the Riley Children’s Foundation where she received her treatment.

McCauley says that dance gave her hope when she was in and out of the hospital, and now she's showing the world that dance can raise awareness and donations. Little Miss Cierra started a viral video dance challenge that has caught the attention of the media. Even pop star Meghan Trainor got in on the action! Dancers around the world can post a video of themselves dancing using the hashtag #DancerBeatingCancer, and make a donation on the Riley page.

Cierra’s bravery and courage, not to mention crazy determination, is truly inspiring! After recovering from cancer, she could have danced and gone back to her normal life, but instead she decided to be a beacon of hope for other children. So take a look at her donation website and remember to post your videos using the hashtag!
