The Jeff Yorke Fund

Hi Folks,

This is our colleague, Jeff Yorke, just over a year ago he was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer.

Sadly, this news came shortly after the birth of his new born girl, Breeah. He went through one round of chemotherapy to subdue the spread of disease, but unfortunately it was unsuccessful. He then had approximately 70% of his stomach removed. Jeff is now going through another round of chemotherapy and has lost over 80 pounds; and is unable to consume enough food to have sufficient energy to take care of himself. His wife stays at home at all times to keep an eye on their baby girl and Jeff, and is unable to work and support their family financially. We all know our first priority; to take care of our families, whom we love.

We are trying to raise funds to help Jeff and his family out in their dark days. As we approach this holiday season, let's count our blessings that we have good health and are able to provide for our loved ones, and help people around us who are going through a difficult time.

As I am setting this page up for Jeff, my friend called him to tell him what we are doing to try and help him out and he gave us an update, it turns out he also has gallstones.

Let's do our part this holiday season, to give Jeff's family a fighting chance to enjoy Christmas. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for any kind words, happy thoughts, and any donation!
It all helps immensely!
