NLL Girl of the Week - Stephanie 

Posted by Sasha at 5:35 PM ET

Second-year Angel loved entertaining since she was a child

Stephanie just finished her second season as a member of the Philadelphia Wings Angels Dance Team. Stephanie's 14-year old brother, Danny, was diagnosed with cancer five years ago. She spends a lot of time fundraising for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, as well as the Alex Lemonade Stand Foundation, raising money for childhood cancer research.

Her brother has undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatment his entire life, but through all of his struggles he still finds time to help others. Together, Stephanie and Danny has done everything from selling lemonade to raise money to collecting donated gifts around the holidays for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

"Danny continues to make others smile," said Stephanie. "I admire his courage and try to live as he does every day."
