Jay Ballard

Founder and President of Anjay's Kids.

Jay is originally from Loretto, Ky. and now resides in Lawrenceburg, Ky. with his wife, Angie and their five children. He holds degrees in radiology, nursing and public health. Jay has always thought about doing missionary work and while at a rock n roll festival in Oklahoma, he met a group of people who raised money for cancer research after a friend passed away from breast cancer. "Since that festival, I have been thinking of a way I can help cancer patients and give back to the community." After meeting Angie, they quickly discovered how they could work together to meet a common goal while helping others. Anjay's Kids was founded in March 2013.
