A special thank you to the UNM Children's Cancer Center Staff: Dr. James McKinnell and the nurses he loved to tease and talk football with, Shaunda, Tiffany and Meghan; Dr. John and Kim Mohs, NNMC HEC4W/HPDP staff, and the community for your support these past four years.
Jarrad was a Senior who had such great character and humor, and who inspired so many. He was the biggest Dallas Cowboys and Laker fan.
He so loved his school and had the heart of a Chieftain - "Once a Chief, Always a Chief."
His last FB posting read, "I have fought as long as I could, time for me to go home, so I can run, jump and do all I couldn't in this world, to be free at last. The cancer didn't win I was just tired of winning."
"Aaaahhhh Chieftains!"
