Jeffrey’s story:

At a first glance you'd think that Jeffrey is a typical 16 year-old attending high school and playing football. He competed in martial arts since the age of 6, played football since the age of 4, and enjoyed going to school and seeing his friends.

Life changed drastically the moment he found a lump on his neck and he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, and a form of cancer, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) followed by 3rd stage liver disease.

Since the 2015 Tuley Games in July, Jeffrey has been fighting to live as a "normal" teenager as possible. In August, he returned to public school after being homebound for 2.5 years. A CT Scan revealed that his stomach tumor is gone. His cancer is in remission! Yes! In the Fall, he was cleared by the doctors to play football. He was having an amazing season, he even made a winning touch down! Unfortunately, everything came to a halt in October. He has been admitted and readmitted to the hospital for multiple medical conditions: bowel obstruction, sepsis, kidney failure, MRSA (and other infections), allergic reactions to new medications, and now diagnosed with CFRD Diabetes. He is homebound again after the multiple hospital admissions/diagnosis and IV medication/Antibiotic infusions.

In February, he started a new medication that not only comes with awful side effects, it comes with an extremely horrific price tag of almost $300,000 for a month's supply (In addition to CF's life extending medications). Sadly, the additional cost is vision problems. His recent eye exam revealed that he has developed cataracts in his left eye. Other than that, he has had some very good days, days that are loved and appreciated by him and those around him.

Jeffrey and his family have been in an all out war the last 4 years. There is a lot more involved with Jeffrey's battle that we don't see, and that we don't know. However, we do know that this is the hardest thing this boy and his family have ever encountered and that is why we are asking that please help support for Jeffrey and his family at the Tuley Games II either as a competitor or spectator.

Our mission, along with Jeffrey and family is to also help raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis, Childhood Cancer and organ donation.

100% of proceeds raised from this event will be used for everything from medication, to just general daily use to help the family in whatever way is needed.
