The Welch Family Cancer Fund has been set up to help a family that is dealing with the horrors of cancer. Both mother and father have been diagnosed with cancer. There are two daughters ages 14 and 16. Both parents have lost their jobs due to their illnesses. They and their daughters are facing incredible emotional and financial hurdles. A group of family members, friends and neighbors have come together to raise funds to help this family. This cause would have been very important to Jimmy as he and Jackie Welch were cousins.
