In Loving Memory of Jacii: Markeita’s Story

Markeita Freeman was just 14 years old when she found out that she was pregnant with her twins, Ja’Naiya and Jacii. Determined to not become another statistic, Markeita graduated from high school and went on to college to make a better life for her family. Not long after the birth of her third child, doctors discovered that the then 3-year old Jacii had Leukemia.
