The family and friends of Jeff Ufleet are uniting to raise money to help with him battle against brain cancer. Please show your support!

Jeff was diagnosed 2 ½ years ago with stage 3 brain cancer, after having a car accident that instigated a CT scan of the head. As you can imagine it has been a long and painful journey for his family. Jeff had his first surgery to remove the tumor in 2009, he went through chemotherapy, he was told at that time that this sort of brain tumors is most likely to come back and of course it did. June this year Jeff went through his 2nd brain surgery. This time his recovery hasn’t been as successful as before. He was told he was one of the lucky ones with this type of cancer; most others never got the opportunity for a second surgery. He developed meningitis after 6 weeks of recovery; he had to be air lifted to Vanderbilt hospital where he spent another 6 nights. His doctors are there at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN. Finally he was sent home with IV meds to be given by a home health nurse, but his family was just so happy to be able to take him home. He started to recover and after 4 weeks into the IV treatments Jeff became disoriented, started running into things and the headaches were all back. He went back to Nashville to see his doctors and have a follow-up MRI, when it showed swelling pushing on his brain and what the doctors believes is active cancer cells present. He was admitted back into Vanderbilt for another 4 nights with basically no real answers or solutions. Jeff remains at home now trying everyday to get stronger. We are hoping for a miracle as we know only God himself can give us. The expense is not just the medical expenses but the many trips that have to be made taking Jeff to the hospital his medicine and more expenses then you can name.

I can't imagine life without Jeff in it. At this point I might as well tell you he is my son in-law but it wouldn't matter if I had just met him he is a remarkable man. Even if this isn't about Jeff this is going to be so very hard on his family and we want to put this benefit together for him and hopefully help raise money to help with the extremely large amount of expensive, insurance will only go so far. Jeff has been married to my daughter for over 20 years and it would be such a blessing and a pleasure if people would come together to help in this wonderful man’s family. Jeff would never ask anyone for anything to benefit himself so I'm asking please find it in your heart to help this family. This breaks my heart to ask and it is so hard to write through the tears but it could show Jeff that there is a person who actually cares enough to give of their selves to someone that deserves it as he does. They live in Calvert City, KY near KY Lake. We have no idea how much time Jeff has left on earth with us, but I want to show him how much he's loved and how he has touched each of our lives. If you would like to talk with someone close to him please call Jan 979-255-1457 and if you want to send a check send it to Jeff Umfleet at 106 Lancelot Ct. Calvert City Ky. 42029
