Tomorrow is the first day of September, which is childhood cancer awareness month. 5 years ago I fought cancer and survived, but many kids do not. Even though I lost my leg and have many side effects to this day, I did not lose my life, and would consider myself very lucky. Sometimes kids will run out of treatment options, or even die because of the chemo itself since it is so toxic. This is because of the lack of funding and awareness for childhood cancer. The national cancer institute has billions of dollars for cancer research, but less than 4% of that money is set aside for childhood cancer research. 4% is not enough, and this needs to change. Awareness leads to funding. Funding leads to research, and research leads to a cure. So, lets show support for ALL kids battling cancer!! #gogold ?
嘉比所在的舞台中心表演藝術學院（Center Stage Academy of the Performing Arts）院長坎普（Kristen Kemp）受訪時說，她和其他老師一度為嘉比調整舞步設計，但從五年前開始就再也不必這樣做，「她自己克服了困難。我讓她跳的舞步和其他高水平舞者沒有區別」。
