A benefit ride for leukemia patient Jarhya Ussery will be held Saturday, May 18, just one week after Relay for Life. Jarhya, 3, had a stem cell transplant designed to replace her bone marrow and is receiving treatment at Egleston’s Children’s Hospital of Atlanta.
Money raised at the benefit will help offset medical expenses. Jarhya is the daughter of Chartiaes Jones of Culloden and the granddaughter of Ira Jones Jr. and Betty Jones. She has a brother, Rogers Wooten III, 2.
