Hi, I am Mike Jones and have worked with Norm for over 10 years here at UAB Athletics.  Norm has spent most of his life helping young men and women in athletics succeed in their chosen sport.  He has spent more than 30 years in Athletic Media Relations at UGA, ECU and here at UAB.  He has worked an impressive six Olympic games and a host of other athletic events from local to international.  Today I am asking you to please help one of our athletic FAMILY members in need.  Norm has battled illness for several years now and it has been a fight that we hope no one ever has to face.  We (UAB Friends and Family) would like to raise $15,000 in ONE week to help support his family with the unexpected medical costs associated with this fight.  It would mean so much to his family and help them have a greater sense of peace during this time of need.  I also would be so grateful to all that can help me support my friend Norm Reilly.

Thank you all and God Bless each one of you!

To All--

Leslie and I continue to be overwhelmed by the extreme show of kindness so many of you have sent our family's way. Thank you so much.

We are so overwhelmed and words can't express our appreciation enough. Your generosity has only inspired me more to keep fighting this fight and winning the battle. You've all touched our hearts.

God Bless You!

Norm and Leslie

Good morning everyone. When I awoke this morning to all the Blessings that each of you have given this family, it proves that God is alive and hard at work in us. As some may not know Norm is battling liver cancer and the prognosis is not what any of us were hoping for. The family and Norm send out their sincerest THANK YOU to everyone for their continued love and support during this difficult time. In talking with Norm yesterday he still has enough energy and desire to make the most out of the time he is given. With this he welcomes the calls, emails and letters of encouragement, it truly brings him joy to reconnect to friends and family. With this unbelievable outpouring of support in merely hours, I will be raising the new goal to $30,000 for support of outstanding and ongoing treatment costs. The fund will remain open until January 14th and at that time the proceeds with be delivered to him and his family from all of us.

"May the Blood of Jesus Christ flow over each and every one of you to protect you through this day he has given. Norm we lift you up this day our friend, so that you may have peace today." ~Amen

Thanks,

Mike

I cannot begin to tell everyone how much this means to Norm, we are both humbled by the outpouring of support for his situation. It is not the monetarily support, but more importantly the wonderful friendships developed through the year that are most important to Norm. As most of you know, Mike Jones, the UAB athletic trainer started this fund for Norm and we thank him for this. "Stormin Norman" has been battling this crazy awful disease for years, having chemo and radiation and still continuing to work at UAB daily and assist with the Olympics and other ventures. Every time Norm reads down the list of supporters he begins to tear up, as do I, and again we appreciate each and every friend made along the road. God Bless.
