Remembering Jada Smoot

By December 22, 2020January 17th, 2024Featured

We are at an absolute loss for words as we learn of the passing of NF Hero Jada Smoot, age 14, recipient of the 2017 Strength and Honor Award at ‘the beNeFit’ hosted by NF Forward in partnership with CTF. We share this tribute to Jada from NF Forward: “Jada was an incredible young woman with the biggest heart. She was smart, self-assured, and wise beyond her years. She was always upbeat and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need, and her infectious personality will not be forgotten. We honored Jada and her mom Nikki with our 2017 Strength and Honor award. Jada passed away on November 24, 2020 at the age of 14.”

In Jada’s memory, we share a link to her Strength and Honor video, which we encourage you to watch. It’ll be apparent from the start that she was an absolutely beautiful person, and a bright shining light: Our hearts go out to all of Jada’s family and her friends.

Jada Smoot and Jeff Hanson and far too many others who are in this NF battle are the reasons we must keep fighting this fight. To all NF families who are dealing with NF: we promise that we will never, never, never stop, until we End NF.
