JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – The power of prayer was present on Tuesday evening as the community gathered together to pray for baby Jack Price, son of Campbell County High School football coach Justin Price. Baby Jack was diagnosed with Leukemia two years ago and he and his family are heading back to Nashville this week for more medical treatments and a bone marrow transplant on Monday.
The community prayer event was organized by Coaches Troy Arnold and Chris Honeycutt, as well as football and cheerleader parents and held at the football field. It was an emotional event of love and worship showing support for Baby Jack and his family.
Coach Chris Honeycutt said it was only fitting that the first event to be held on the football stadium’s new turf was a community prayer event for Baby Jack.
“God has unified this county through this little boy and his struggle, and we will continue to pray,” Honeycutt said.
Worship songs were played and prayers were said to support the family as Jack prepares to continue his medical treatments.
Coach Justin Price thanked everyone for their prayers and support. He spoke of the “Goodness and faithfulness of God and the blessing of the community’s prayers and support. He said he had seen God “move in so many ways over the last two years.”
“We are humbled by everybody’s support for us. I don’t know how to say how much we appreciate it; we truly love the people of Campbell County,” Justin Price said.
He and wife Traci, Baby Jack and their other two sons, Reese and Luke, are heading to Nashville to begin treatment and prepare for the bone marrow transplant. They ask that the community continue to lift Jack and their family up in prayer. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/21/2021-6AM)
