WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - A community is coming together to help a Worth County deputy and his family with medical expenses.   

Friends and neighbors of Deputy Tommy Adams say after he was diagnosed with cancer in April 2013, Adams has made several trips to the hospital.

 Now an account has been set up at the SunTrust Bank in Sylvester to help ease those expenses for the family.

Sheriff Jeff Hobby says he's glad they're helping the deputy that's served the area for many years. 

"It's a great idea. Tommy and his wife have been through a lot since probably last April. Since April 2013, he's not worked, so I imagine he's getting into some financial strains right now. "

To find out more about donating at SunTrust Bank, call 229-776-8400.
