Who Was Courtney?
Courtney Alana-Joy Jones was a powerhouse! She was a Twinsburg, Ohio 6th grader. She had an abundance of beauty, brains, and brute! After acing her classes, Courtney jostled a schedule of Ballet, Kajukempo Karate, Ice Skating, Swimming, Arts and Crafts, and Fashion. She would never, ever turn down an opportunity to ride roller coasters, bungee jump, rock climb, or plan the next party.
Courtney had a passion for living a joyful and abundant life. She was a perfect daughter and sister. She gave everything 110%. When she didn't feel well enough to go dance classes and she slowed down on attending activities, doctors thought that she was battling a winter sinus infection. The horror of hearing the words Leukemia-Lymphoma cancer is what came next. It changed her life, and the lives of everyone around her... forever.
The Courtney Jones Care and Cure Foundation team work hard to ensure that in the times when families hear those dreaded words, We Are Here, We Are Committed, and We Understand.
You can tell that she is showered with lots of love by all the cards and letters from friends and family.
Here are a few words from Gigi's Mom- "Genesis was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2018. She is a sweet, sassy, loving, and smart 7-year-old. Gigi's mom, dad, sister, and sister dog, love her very much. The family is so proud of her and could not ask for a more beautiful and courageous young lady. Gigi has touched so many lives and put smiles on many strangers' faces.
We hate that this monster (cancer) has come into our lives and changed it forever. Gigi has taught us all strength through dark times. We are encouraged by Gigi's strength and will continue to fight for every kid facing this monster" Gigi's Mom
Note: Gigi sadly succumbed to cancer. She touched my heart immensely and she will be missed. We have so much work to do to conquer cancer. Please join us in this fight. Children's lives are depending on it.
