Help Latoya Beat Cancer

BigManBigHeart is joining forces with founder Dillan Gibbons' former Notre Dame teammate, Ja'Mion Franklin, to help him raise funds to support his mother, Latoya, as she battles breast cancer. Sadly, Ja'Mion and his family are not strangers to the cancer battle, as Ja'Mion's father fought AML leukemia four years ago and has been in remission for a year. James is now dealing with new medical issues, diverticulitis, and bronchitis, just as his wife, Latoya is beginning her fight against breast cancer. Now, as both of his parents are dealing with serious health conditions, Duke defensive tackle #55 Ja'Mion Franklin is taking time away from winter workouts to take care of his Mom and Dad.   Latoya has been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and faces surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy. She begins chemotherapy this week.

Latoya and James Franklin have worked hard their whole lives to put Ja'mion in a position to be the man he is today. Until he got sick, James worked as a supervisor at a vegetable plant. Latoya is still trying to work as a dietary aid at a nursing home, which concerns Ja'Mion because of the increased Covid risk.

Both parents have devoted their lives to Ja'Mion and his 18-year-old sister, Jamyia, and they have supported Ja'Mion throughout his career as a student-athlete at both Notre Dame and Duke. Now, it's time for Ja'Mion to take care of them, but he has so much on his plate that he needs all of the support he can get to do that. The Franklins are a family of FIGHTERS, and they have the courage, bravery, and strength to get through this. Your support and prayers mean the world to them.

Please DONATE to help Ja'Mion reach his goal so that he can take care of his mothers medical expenses. If you cannot afford to DONATE, please SHARE this GoFundMe with as many others as you can! Let's show some BIG LOVE and support Latoya Franklin's FIGHT against breast cancer.
