ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People are reaching out to help an Albany family dealing with heartache and hardship. Now a local pizza shop is pitching in and you can help them.

Tanya Jones has two sons, both terminally ill. 15-year-old Javon has a cancerous brain tumor. 4-year-old Jacarien has Type 3 Pfeiffer Syndrome.

It's an emotional and financial strain on the family. Papa John's Pizza plans to help the family out by donating 20-percent of all of Wednesday's sales.

"We're hoping to raise at least $3,000 so that means hopefully we'll be really busy. We've been handing out flyers all throughout town.  We're just asking that everyone pitch in with any order small or big," said Papa John's Marketing Coordinator Jay Francisco.

Papa John's hopes for an outpouring from the community so they got extra boxes prepared Tuesday.

There is also an account set up at Bank of America for the family. It's under the Jones Family Donations Account.
