Journey, you will be missed greatly....

Your memory will never be forgotten.

Rest In Peace our Princess Warriar, Journey B. Butler.

 On Thursday, July 7th, we said goodbye to this beautiful angel. This #PrincessWarrior who was appropriately named Journey.  This is the first time we've lost a student and wouldn't wish this pain on anyone.  In February, Journey was diagnosed with a rare form of Kidney Cancer called RMC. RMC is aggressive and is prominent in young, African Americans who carry the sickle cell trait. Normally it isn't detected until Stage 4. In January, Journey began having severe back pains and she couldn't hold any food down. The doctors didn't know what was going on. Finally, at Children's Hospital, she was diagnosed.

Journey was a fighter. She didn't let her diagnosis crush her spirit. She recorded a CD before her passing and on Wednesday 6/29, when she was given 24 hours to live, she fought and held on until 7/7. She's in a better place and thankful she's not in pain anymore, but we ask you to pray for her family and for our dance family as many of our students are dealing with death for the first time.

Also, if you could take a minute to sign this petition and spread the word, we would be eternally grateful. RMC could be detected prior to stage 4 with yearly ultrasounds for those with the sickle cell trait. This could save a life, or at the very least prolong one.
