Ariana (12) loves to dance with her hairy friend, Mikey her dog. Sadly, she has a ticking bomb inside of her: two kidneys that are not working. If the kidneys won’t get better, she needs to get a dialysis where a tube will be placed in her stomach. For Ariana, this sounds like a terrible idea because that means that she won’t be able to dance anymore. Because there is not much time left, she decides to look for a donor herself by posting an online video. Despite her determination, it’s not an easy task because she much more prefers to direct the camera to the fun stuff in her life. Her dog Mikey for example or to show how good she is at dancing. But how should you make a video about something that you’re actually so scared of?
