In January of this year Jeff was given the devastating news of being diagnosed with grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (a malignant type of astrocytoma which is a brain tumor of the central nervous system). This is terminal with a life expectancy of 14.6-18 months. To prolong the time he does have he has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation daily. Between the chemo/radiation and medication it has taken a toll, not only on Jeff but the entire family.  

Jeff is a loving, hard-working husband, an incredible father of two young girls and a caring friend.   He is always happy to help anyone in need and gives himself full heartedly to the good of his community, church, and daughter’s school and family. Men like Jeff are rare, he is one of a kind in everyway. He is a selfless, kind and gentle soul that should have had the privilege to live to be 100. The tragedy of not being able to watch his children grow hits Jeff and those around him the hardest. Anyone who has had the pleasure of getting to know Jeff Funnell, count him as a blessing and are humbled by his amazing spirit of giving. He continues to show great strength and dignity through his illness and is what the family is clinging to.

To really understand how amazing Jeff is you only need to watch the face of his children light up as he enters the room. Jeff is truly a bright shining star that will continue to glow in the eyes and smiles of his two sweet little girls. Words seem to fail somehow in describing the footprint Jeff has on his girls, his wife, and all those he touches.

We need your help! We want to help Jeff and his family in any way we can so that we can alleviate some of the financial stress, one of the few things this family should not have to worry about at such a difficult time.   Please show your support to a wonderful family and remember that no donation is too small. We will be forever grateful for your contribution.

May Jeff and his family share many more wonderful memories together over the upcoming months. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with this incredible family.
