Casey and Jodi Smith have six incredible children, ranging from the ages of five to 19. The past few years, these children have experienced true devastation when they lost their father to a brain tumor in August of 2019. Then, on May 10, 2021, their mother, Jodi, lost her four-year battle with ovarian cancer.
Jodi’s younger sister, Annie, and her husband, Nick, have graciously welcomed all six of Jodie’s children into their home to live with them and their own five kids in Bountiful, Utah. Nick and Annie plan to sell both homes and purchase a single home to accommodate their newly expanded family.
The local community has rallied around these warriors while they face the daunting task of blending two families. Udo Gives has joined the cause and wants to help support this family amidst this heartbreaking tragedy.
Udo Gives has already helped provide a larger family vehicle by collaborating with the generous owners of Murdock Chevrolet.
Udo Gives also presented the family with numerous gift cards that can be used at the parent’s convenience as they shoulder the financial challenges of their expanded family.
In addition, Udo Gives planned a shopping spree that helped outfit these growing children with all of their basic clothing and summer supply needs.
Finally, Udo Gives surprised the entire family with an all expense paid vacation to Disneyland, where the family was able to get away from the chaos and stress of the past few years. They also got to attend a Los Angeles Angels baseball game and enjoy quality time together as a family.
