Update: The amazing selflessness of Libby's parents continues. They've asked for donations to the Carolinas Healthcare Foundation (Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and BMT) in honor of Libby. Below is from Libby's parents.

"Part of our journey required endless days in the Clinic and it is our opinion that there needs to be a play area where kids can be kids if they are forced to spend 8-10 hours a day there. In the back of the clinic there is a large infusion area that is no longer in use. We also believe that a childrens clinic needs to be full of life and full of bright colors and paintings. Right now the clinic is a pale tan and feels about as lifeless as you can imagine. Our hope is that these funds can help change these 2 things!! "

Unless Barb and Josh request otherwise, all funds donated through gofundme will go directly to them so they can support this effort and we can all help build a children's play area in Libby's name.

With faith, trust, & pixie dust (and our most sincere thanks),

Virginia Tech Tri-Delta Beta Nu Alum (aka Barb's sisters)

We will always Libstrong for you, Libby.

I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child and I'm sure any amount of money won't cause that pain to go away. However, your donation of any amount will help alleviate Libby's family of some of the financial burden from the past year. Barb and Josh Jones had to do what every parent fears more than anything.  They recently had to say goodbye to their precious baby girl.  At only 3, little Libby fought a long, hard fight against this awful enemy called leukemia (ALL).  She went through more tests than one can count, including a bone marrow transplant.  While her family searched high and low for her cure, the hospital became her home.  Please help us care for her incredible parents (and her baby brother, Will) when the last thing they should be worrying about are medical bills.

Thank you for loving Libby and for helping us care for her family.  Thank you for helping to support this little girl who has brought out so much love from us all.

With faith, trust, & pixie dust (and our most sincere thanks),

We will always Libstrong for you, Libby.

I attended the same high school and college as Barbara. We were not close friends, but share a lot of same mutual friends. I came across the story of the passing of Libby and my heart went out to her family and just wanted to show support.
