Kortne Ford tweeted a message early this morning “RIP Momma”. After a lengthy battle with cancer, his mother, Lauri Ford, passed away Sunday. This follows the mid-November announcement when the Ford family made a decision to discontinue cancer treatment. Ford called it. “The hardest day of my life.”
Sunday will no doubt top that awful day.
Home sweet home! Extremely overwhelmed with the number of people that have donated and/or sent prayers for my moms cause… Melts my heart. Over 400 donations in less than a week to ensure she experiences the best quality of life possible. Thank you so much! ❤️❤️❤️ #keepfighting pic.twitter.com/kJkVa7hfZy

Lauri Ford’s GoFundMe page is still open if you would like to contribute to the Ford family. Ford will always be known for his skill on the pitch but his years-long devotion to his mother was truly extraordinary.
