Jay Odum

Recently, Jay Odum was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer.  The future for him is less than a long one and grim.  Our goal is to raise donations to help his family provide whatever may be necessary to keep him as comfortable as possible for as long as God will let us.  If any of you know anything about, or have experienced the total life change to everyone surrounding someone with the dreaded “C” word, then you know that the already astronomical high costs of medical care can go far beyond what insurance will cover.

Due to his declining health, he was left no choice but to leave his job, give up his only income, give up his home, and depend on the love, support and care of his children, his family and his friends.  With his children also having families of their own to care for, the additional monetary toll that this road ahead will burden them with is significant. 

Jay is a proud man and would never ask for a hand-out, so we, his family and friends, are asking for him. 

Jay is a strong man, a devoted and loving father, grandfather and brother!  He is a friend to more than mostpeople could dream of having called friends.  To Jay, we are ALL his family.  We have laughed together, traveled together, had fun together and shed tears together.  We are asking you to help in any way you can!  No one fights alone!  #teamjaystrong  #prayersforjay  #fightlikehell.
