Jamie Gilmore gets Facebook support after bringing fight against cancer to Texans game

While the Houston Texans were losing to the Green Bay Packers on the turf last weekend, some fans were experiencing a more personal battle in the stands. 

Jamie Gilmore, a 30-year-old pediatric cancer survivor holding an eye-catching sign, had her photo snapped by KHOU at Monday's game. That picture later went viral, accruing tens of thousands of likes, plus hundreds of comments and shares, since its posting. 

Gilmore is currently fighting her fourth round against cancer, this time an extremely rare form of the disease called acinic cell carcinoma. Her experience has led her to create Jamie's Hope, a nonprofit aimed at raising money for targeted therapy to fight rare cancers.

The organization hosted its inaugural Masquerade for a Cure, benefitting the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Saturday night at the River Oaks Country Club. Find more information here, and watch KHOU's full story on Gilmore below:
