Jo Dee Messina headlining fund-raiser for local man in fight for life


Grammy-nominated country music artist Jo Dee Messina is headlining a Sunday, April 28, fund-raiser for Russ Cobb, a local man in the fight for his life.

Russ Cobb, co-owner of Zoomies Pet Care, has been diagnosed with an aggressive inoperable cancerous abdominal mass that has limited treatment options, with doctors saying chemotherapy and radiation have only a 2.8 percent success rate.

Russ has been given only six month life prognosis.

However, he and his wife, Jessica, have learned of a German treatment facility offering cutting edge care with a 90 percent success rate fighting this form of cancer. With travel, lodging and treatment expenses estimated at $40,000, Russ and Jessica are seeking the community’s support.

The Ride for Russ Barrel Race this Sunday is an opportunity to thank Russ and Jessica for their generous dedication of time, space and resources that has saved the lives of countless dogs and cats.

The Barrel Race and show will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 28, at the Barnesville-Lamar County Arena located at 129 Roberta Drive, Barnesville.

Come out and give life to this local family that gives so much to others.
