My Story

My Jenessa is a spunky fun loving six year old who loves music, dancing, swimming and being with her family. Her favorite color is blue and her favorite place is the beach. Janessa's dream aside from meeting Justin Bieber, the boy who stole her heart, is to become an Olympic swimmer when she grows up. She's funny and has a smile that could melt your heart but don't let it fool you she also speaks her mind and will let you know when she's not happy. My daughter has shown me never to take one minute for granted. With more courage than a hundred men she has taught me to never give up. I willl never forget the comfort and love she gave me through her darkest days and for that I will live the rest of my life fighting for her. Shaving my head is NOTHING compared to what these little warriors go through and I will gladly do it in honor of my Jenessa and all the children who have fought and continue to fight cancer like she has. My fight is her fight and this is why im shaving.
