Jeff Young

Friends of Jeff is a community of individuals that have rallied to the aid of ALS victim Jeff Young and his daughter.

As a single father living on a fixed income, Jeff cannot possibly meet all of the financial challenges associated with such a catastrophic illness

The friends of Jeff are all who have contributed in any way to easing the burden this illness has brought to Jeff and his daughter. All those making financial contributions, contributions of time and effort, and words and gestures of encouragement and support make up the community we call Friends of Jeff.
