A quick glance at Magnolia Jones and you would think she is just your normal 6-year-old, but behind her radiating smile is a story unlike most kids her age. Magnolia was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in June of 2013. Acute lymphoblastic is type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. The Brookhaven Academy first-grader has not let her diagnosis affect her optimism, which stems from her parents. “We decided we could make this situation a horrible one or a better one, so we decided we could make it better,” Emily Jones said. Magnolia has been known to turn her hospital visits into dance parties. It is nearly impossible not to gravitate towards Magnolia’s cheerful and positive spirit. Magnolia has been under the watchful eye of her doctors at Batson Children’s Hospital for a little over three years. In October, Magnolia is scheduled to be done with her therapy and begin her road to remission.
