Chiara, from the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, has held the joy and the artistry of dance close to her heart throughout her whole life. Before being diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare cancer that occurs in and around the bones, Chiara danced professionally with the Washington Ballet. Although her illness has tested her in ways she never expected, it has led Chiara to experience arts programming in a unique way. In turn, she has found inspiration, empowerment and healing through the arts.
