Brittany Smith, 28, of Lancaster, Texas passed away on January 26, 2017 after a battle with sarcoma cancer.
A sarcoma is a rare kind of cancer. Sarcomas grow in connective tissue -cells that connect or support other kinds of tissue in our bodies. These tumors are most often found in the bones, muscles, tendons, cartilage, nerves, fat, and blood vessels of our arms and legs.
Brittany is remembered as "an extraordinary kindergarten teacher." She was said to be passionate, giving and enthusiastic. She went above and beyond her duties and she truly loved what she did.
Brittany was a native of Long Beach, California. She received her BA from Grambling State University in Louisiana. There, she was active in campus life and even became the campus' very first Miss Plus Couture pageant winner. During her time at Gambling State, she implemented several educational forums to help empower students. Also, she coached cheerleading and tutored students in Louisiana, Texas, and California.
In 2007, she founded a non-profit organization and named it RoyalT. RoyalT, which stands for Realizing Our Youths Attributes in Life, Today. This mentoring program uses theatre as an emotional outlet to modify and reduce negative behavioral choices of students in urban communities.
Friends say she was always so confident, fearless, sweet and inspiring.
Brittany was a light to so many and her loss is keenly felt by the many lives she touched. Our thoughts are with her loved ones. Continue to rest peacefully Brittany...
