Jeff Reed is the type of guy that would give the shirt off his back. And he has.  Jeff is a one of a kind cowboy, a loving husband to Elizabeth, a great father to 4-year-old Nellie Jo and a great friend to so many. 

  Right now, he needs us more than ever. About 3 weeks ago Jeff was having some unusual symptoms. An MRI was done on Wednesday, 3/6, which showed an aggressive brain tumor causing swelling and shifting of his brain. After receiving the diagnosis, Jeff's condition deteriorated and he had to be transported to Springfield by helicopter where they ultimately determined that he has Glioblastoma brain cancer.  He had emergency surgery on the afternoon of 3/7 to remove the tumor. He is currently in ICU and awaiting test results.  In the coming months, he will have to undergo several rounds of chemo and radiation.
 Elizabeth has been by his side every step of the way and is going to have a hard road ahead of her as well. Time off work and medical bills that will start to pile up. They need our prayers, love and support in the coming days, weeks and months. 
  Please help this sweet family out in their time of need. Any act of kindness is appreciated.   100% will go to The Reeds and donations can also be made to Security Bank in Cassville under their name. 
Thank you!

From Elizabeth:
"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. " -Winston Churchill

The Lord put this man on this earth to serve him and to care for animals. We are home and he is resting from the craniotomy. Chemotherapy and radiation will begin shortly after he has healed. He prefers to spend his time one of two ways. One is to be with his family and the people he loves and cares for. The other is to be horseback on this sorrel horse. With time, he'll be able to do both but we're thankful he is home with us.

Update on Jeff: Diagnosis is Glioblastoma grade 4. He must undergo 42 days of chemotherapy and radiation to begin in 2-4 weeks after he heals from his surgery. That will be followed by several rounds of chemotherapy. He's feeling better and glad to be home. He says he is going to beat this because he needs to watch Nellie Jo grow up.
