JuCan – Alabama Chapter
Thank you, JuCan Foundation Alabama/Birmingham Chapter for showing ❤️ to the Eaton Family this Christmas! Angel Eaton battled #EwingsSarcoma bone cancer and passed away on September 18, 2016. This young lady was passionate about Jesus, her mama and her new baby sister, Autumn! She felt blessed to be well enough to welcome Autumn into this world and they got to bond and spend months together laughing and playing like 2 sisters should. They lived life in “fast forward” as Angel’s time was short and she couldn’t stay long.
Angel was eager to head off to college this past Fall and start her career path toward cosmetology and theatrical make up artistry. She never got to fulfill that dream due to a relapse in her health, but we prefer to envision Angel painting the heavenly sky with the largest, puffiest brushes and the most beautiful water colors!
The Cobb Family had followed Angel for a few years during her battle and we took a detour to meet up with she and her mom, Kim, when we were on our 4,000 mile #WalkAcrossAmerica for Pediatric Cancer Awareness in May 2015. Angel, her mom and Angel’s fellow cancer warrior friend, Kelsey Honeycutt ate dinner with Team JuCan and we celebrated cancer victories and great health over Japanese Hibachi steaks.
Boy what a year can bring….
As part of the JuCanFoundation.org mission, we not only help families during their battle with CANcer, but we also aid in the aftermath! This Christmas was a first for the Eaton family without Angel and nothing we can do would bring her back. But, we didn’t want Kim and her sweet baby Autumn to go without. As a tribute to Angel, the O’Donnell Family (Jeff, Stefanie, Tara (our Ju’s BFF), and Kayla) brought gifts and a large donation to be used toward the many outstanding expenses that Kim has as a single mom.
If you would like to help with donating toward a grave marker for Angel, please designate “Angel Eaton” with your gift to JuCanFoundation.org/donate. We hope to be able to help lay Angel to rest and make her memory as beautiful as she was. #JuCan #JuDid #AngelDid #KimCan #UCanMakeADifference #GodCan #AngelsAmongUs #JuCanAlabama
The JuCan Foundation is grateful to El Toro Mexican Restaurant for partnering with us to make Christmas magic for children/families fighting cancer in #houston and beyond! Thanks to your help, Team #JuCan delivered thousands of toys to the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital.
In addition, the #JuCanFoundation & partners fulfilled the Christmas wish list of 9 families who would have not been able to afford Christmas due to cancer treatment(s). You were a huge part of our record success this year. Please thank all of your employees and management. Thank you for your compassion and love. Please continue to follow @JuCanFoundation to see your donations bringing smiles to families. Merry Christmas.
Thank you Team JuCan partners, Kelly Oetting and Marcy Smith, for giving Gloria the Christmas she deserves. So happy that Ju’s angels have always come to the rescue when they were needed the most! We learned about this sweet 17 year old girl fighting Osteosarcoma (a rare bone cancer) who lives hours from the hospital and who would not be home for Christmas this year. She would instead be having chemo before Christmas and again soon after.
So,….they brought Christmas to her! And besides, with a name like “Gloria” who can’t help but celebrate Christmas????
Thank you JuCan Angels for helping bring smiles to Gloria this year! Please pray for Gloria and her family as they seek a cure!! We ❤️ you Gloria!! #TeamJuCan will be standing with you!
