The Jimmy Crabtree Cancer Fund Inc. was set up to honor Jimmy Crabtree and his cause. He and his wife, Lorie, had discussed the hope of forming such an organization that would assist other young families in the West Orange County area who also are battling cancer. Jimmy and Lorie benefited from the support and love of their family, friends, church and community and wanted to pass this opportunity to another family.
