In late 2014, Kyle Hanagami was diagnosed with leukemia, a cancer of the blood. In 2013, Hanagami had started a fundraising campaign for cancer research entitled Letters of Love. For every ten letters he received from his supporters, he would donate one dollar to cancer research. The campaign has received over 30,000 letters thus far. In Hanagami's announcement of the renewal of the campaign in 2015, he also announced his diagnosis publicly, stating that it was "one of the scariest moments [he's] experienced." This announcement was made in the form of another dance video to a cover of Snow Patrol's "Give Me Strength" by Brock Baker and Alyson Stoner, a lyrical hip hop dance starring his friends who have experienced troubles with cancer in their own families
