Singer keeps late Hanover girl’s vision alive

HANOVER, Va. (WRIC) — A Hanover girl’s vision will live on even in her passing. Singer Ashley Argota wrote and produced the song ‘Hope is in You’ for Iris Jacobs, who lost her battle with cancer in December.

8News was there in November when Jacobs’ neighborhood threw her a surprise 14th birthday celebration. She was just coming home from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, where she had been battling Stage IV Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare cancer, for months.

Sadly, Jacobs died on December 30, but all proceeds from the sale of this song will be donated to Iris’ Hope Fund.  Her wish was that no other child would have to suffer from this horrible disease.
