Jones said it's been a long 10-year battle. She's now coming to grips with the new diagnosis of terminal cancer.
"I'm still learning, but what I've really tried to do is to live every day in the moment and to just get by, hour by hour sometimes, and with as much passion, grace, and gratitude as I possibly can," Sara said.

A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
