Iím not sure if anyone has mentioned it in another thread, so I thought a new thread would be best. Tyus and Tre Jones announced on Instagram that their mother, Debbie Jones, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Hereís the link:

For any of those that donít have Instagram, hereís the post from Tyus:

1tyus: We are writing this post so that this information comes from our family, and that we can answer any questions before they are asked. Our mother, our rock, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. We are fortunate that it was caught at an early stage. We want to let everyone know she is doing great and fighting extremely hard. Anyone that knows her, knows how tough and truly strong she is and that she will beat this! We would like to ask for prayers, positive vibes, and privacy for our family during this time. We love you momma and we got your back!

What a tough announcement to make. Debbie Jones is part of the Duke family always. I am really glad that it was caught early and am praying for a quick and smooth remission. Letís all be understanding of the Jones family and whatever choices they decide to make. This is way bigger than basketball.

She is obviously a strong mother who raised two fine, tough-nosed young men. Fight on Mrs. Jones!

Four young men! Tyus is the middle child of Jadee and Tre Jones and they have a half brother, Reggie Bunch. And they are all part of the Duke family. The Joness of Apple Valley, Minnesota are a Blue Devil family, through and through. My hope is for a speedy and full recovery.

My apologies to all the children!

I was fortunate enough to be able to meet Debbie Jones ó as well as Jadee and Tre ó in 2015 during the Final Four. Beyond a great degree of kindness it was very evident that she is indeed the rock of the family. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to her.

The furniture family?

Is your family partial to any particular room, style, or genre?

Any art deco, or post modern pieces in the family?
