Jessi Patrick was an 8th Grade student at Towns County Middle School when she was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) on June 26, 2010.  During treatment at Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta she became friends with Lily Anderson who was also fighting cancer.  Lily introduced Jessi to Kingdom Kids which is an organization that grants wishes to children facing challenging circumstances and health issues.  Jessi was granted her wish through Lily’s Run.  After becoming part of the Kingdom Kids family Jessi was looking forward to “Paying it Forward” when she finished treatment and was excited about organizing a run to help grant more wishes to children.  With great sadness, Jessi succumbed to side effects from treatment so we are continuing to carry on her wish to help other children. Please join us and help a child “Have a Happily Better After.”
