Fight for Jontanna

I want to introduce y'all to a really special person in my life. I first met Jontanna when I was in middle school and we began cheering together. From then on we became great friends as we spent our high school years cheering football, basketball, and competition together. I always knew Jontanna was a really really great person. I don't think I have ever met someone who is so selfless. She is someone who is always there for people and goes out of her way to be loyal. Over the last five years since we graduated high school Jontanna has been fighting a constant battle with a disease called auto immune hepatitis--a life threatening, chronic live disease. Recently her doctors have decided that the next step in her treatment is for her to have a liver transplant. As I'm sure you can imagine, a liver transplant is a very expensive process. From the actual transplant, to hospital bills, to gas driving back and forth from the hospital, things can get very expensive, very fast. 

The South Gwinnett High School c/o 2008 has rallied together to support Jontanna and raise funds in her honor. Not only are we raising financial support but we are also teaming up to do a 5k walk/run in her honor. 

If you feel lead, I want to invite you to check out Jontanna's GoFundMe site to read more about her journey and find out how you can support her.



  1. Jamie, you are such a good friend!! I'm sure she appreciates you very much. I will be praying for her!

  2. Wait.. I love this. How precious is it that your high school is coming back together to support her. Your heart is so great, friend!
