Joseph “Jojo” Paciano Quilantang 08/09/01 – 02/26/16 Jojo began his battle with cancer on December 20, 2007 when he was six years old. After surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, Jojo was in remission for about seven years. It came back in October 8, 2014, and later on September 28, 2015. No matter how many obstacles he encountered–whether it be nausea, headaches, neutropenic or homework–he kept fighting until his last breath. On Friday, February 26, 2016, heaven gained an angel. Jojo was an inspiration to many. He was a loving and caring young man. He was smart, funny and a joy to be around.
