The family and friends of Jeffrey Garrett are uniting to help support the family during his fight with brain cancer. Thank you for caring!

Jeff Garrett was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer in September of 2012. Father of three boys, ages, 11-15, and husband to Marcy, Jeff will begin his fight against cancer with radiation and chemotherapy on October 15th, 2012. He is also part of a trial study with experimental medication at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. His ability to work during these treatments is unlikely, and his insurance will not pick up all of the medical expenses and cost of living while he is out of work. His wife, Marcy, will be involved in his care and that of her family and unable to work as well.

Jeff is a clinical shift manager or head nurse in the Emergency Room at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Near the end of September in 2012, Jeff suffered a seizure and subsequent tests revealed tumors in his brain. After brain surgery on September 22, all three tumors were removed, but the biopsy revealed that it was level 4 astrocytoma, a very aggressive form of the cancer that will most likely recur.

As his family, we want to take the burden of the medical expenses off of the family, and we appreciate your prayers and your financial help. Thank you in advance for your generosity. We trust that Jeff is in God's care.
