Sweet little 8 year old Ava Jones was diagnosed with stage 3 Rhabdomyosarcoma back in July, 2020. What started as night terrors and debilitating headaches revealed itself to be a very rare form of pediatric cancer. While Rhabdomyosarcoma itself is rare, the form Ava has is only diagnosed about 500 times each year so there is no real standard care procedure or protocol to follow. She has been bravely and ferociously fighting with the exceptional help of Wolfson’s, Mayo Clinic, and Nemour’s hospitals, as well as the Proton Radiation Therapy Institute, all going up to bat for her.
Ava’s journey over the last 7 months has been a true testament to faith, family, and community. She is supported by tons of neighbors, classmates, friends, family but above all her incredible parents Kym and Kevin.
To help out Ava's family with expenses and also to help give Ava her DREAM room, we are putting on a run called Ava's Army 5K. In addition to running, walking or supporting from a far we welcome any and all donations.
Our race committee has formed the non-profit Ava's Army and all funds will be going directly into the non-profit to support Ava.
Thank you so much for any donation big or small!!
