Haley Jones

Tupelo, Mississippi

Haley Jones, 17, of Tupelo, Mississippi, a junior at Shannon High School, volunteers in a variety of ways to fight colon cancer; she helps promote and participates in an annual “Fight For Your Buns 5K,” donated paintings to be auctioned to benefit a cancer care fund, and successfully petitioned to have March declared “Colon Cancer Awareness Month” in her town. Haley was inspired to promote this cause after her grandmother was successfully treated for colon cancer.
