ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Friends are raising money to help an Albany man battling a rare condition.

Jody Clack was diagnosed with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy in 2008.
He's been using a wheelchair since 2013.
Clack is waiting to hear whether he'll receive a grant to help pay for driving modifications to his van purchased last month.
 Friends set up a gofund me account to help pay off the loan for the van and renovations to make his bathroom wheelchair accessible.

"Through this blessing that God is going to give us we will be able to turn around and share the gospel and bless other people in ways that we can help,” said Danyel Clack, wife. “Sometimes you're the receiver and sometimes you're the giver." 

 The Clack's goal is to raise close to $80,000.  
  They've also set up an account at Albany Bank & Trust under Benefit for Jody Clack.
