Lauren's First and Goal
Justen Graymond Jones
We had the pleasure of meeting Justen and his family at our 2009 football camp at the University of South Florida. Justen and his family graciously agreed to come out to the camp and meet with the coaches and participants to explain the dire need for research towards a cure for pediatric brain tumors.
Despite being in the midst of his own battle and difficult treatment protocol, Justen toughed it out in the scorching heat and spent the afternoon charming every person he met. Justen earned his wings on June 27, 2010 at the age of 11. God bless you Justen.
