Ellen met an incredibly talented dancer who told her his story. Evan Ruggiero received some of the worst news a tap dancer could hear. What happened next was nothing short of incredible.

Wow! Evan is such an inspiration to me in many ways. I feel like we have so much in common; we both are from Jersey and defy the odds of our physical challenges. Watching him dance is so beautiful because he doesn't let anything stop him from living his life and his passion! I have Cerebral Palsy as a result of my premature birth, which asks of me to use crutches for stability, strength and independence, but my disabilty doesn't define me and it sure doesn't define Evan! We just happen to have different ABILITIES! Thank you so much,
Ela :)

Evan Ruggiero is an amazing person. He is an inspiration. I am going through treatment for cancer at the moment and he gives me hope that you can get through it and live your dream! Good on you Evan!

I can't access tap dancer video for some reason. I'm sure it's great. ;)

My Prayers are with you Grandma Kim! Ellen, she is right, you are the perfect advocate! Please visit my friend's facebook page ...Love Hope Faith and Courage for Benjamin Venezia. Benjamin lost his battle this past December. He was only 13.

Ellen, We are looking for an advocate and spokes person for Pediatric Cancer. You would be such an asset to the cause! We need to spread Awareness. If you research the stats on funding, treatment, research, and overall attention given to these kids you'd be horrified. I am the Grand Mother of a child who has AML. And what I've uncovered throughout this whole ordeal makes me very Angry! Please take a moment to check out the horrible facts about childhood cancers. We need help! We are new at fighting for a cause, but this is definitely a cause worth fighting for. I have a great respect for you and believe that you genuinely care about issues you involve yourself in. That's why your support would mean so much. I know I may be grasping at straws with this email, but I will try anything to make some progress in this fight. Either way, I think you are a remarkable person, and I believe you can make a difference in the lives of so many kids. Thank You for listening. Sincerely, Kim Castanon.
