Please include Account Number 5958 - Clayton Eubanks with your contribution. Charles McClellan Funeral Home in Quincy (850-627-7677) is handling the arrangements. Clay was born Nov. 7, 1975, in Tallahassee, Fla., to Kay and Terry Eubanks. He was a graduate of Florida State University. From birth you could see that Clay was a "natural born" fighter. He was born with FA, diagnosed at 16, and had a bone-marrow transplant in 1993 for treatment. In February 2007 he was diagnosed with lung cancer due to the FA and had surgery to remove two lobes of his right lung in May. After his three-month check-up it was determined a second surgery would be necessary in September to remove the rest of the lung. After the second surgery he developed pneumonia that led to ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome). Clay was in critical condition and on a ventilator. After a couple of months on the ventilator, he was transferred to a LTACH (long-term acute-care hospital) that specializes in weaning patients from the ventilator, which they were able to successfully accomplish. He was a week shy of his return home to Mexico Beach when he aspirated, causing another severe infection worsening his ARDS. Clay then returned to the University of Minnesota ICU unit and was again supported by a ventilator. A loving and devoted wife Amy, a loving family, and a host of friends supported Clay. Clay was a "lover of life" and had an incredible will to live. His fantastic sense of humor and lovable stubbornness contributed to his groundbreaking survival. Through his fearlessness, Clay taught us all to be strong in the face of adversity. From Clay's journey, he made us all realize that "Life is good" no matter what the circumstances. We were all inspired by him. Clay is survived by his wife of one year, Amy, of Mexico Beach, Fla.; his mother, Kay Wood Eubanks of Mexico Beach; his father and stepmother, Terry and Mary Eubanks of Bristol; his sister, Staci Scaturro (Russel) of Mexico Beach; his niece, Kaylani Byrd Scaturro of Mexico Beach; his grandparents, Paul and Iona Eubanks of Tallahassee; his mother-in-law, Debbie Ashbrook; a brother-in-law, David Ashbrook (Joy); a nephew, David Ashbrook; aunt and uncle, Barry and Kay Wood of Florence, Ala.; cousins, Katherine and Scott Morris of Florence, Rebecca Wood of Birmingham, Ala., Karen and David Long of Gainesville, Ga., Christine and Brian Cartwright of Woodstock, Ga., and Catherine and Oliver Gunter of St. Louis, Mo.; and other family and many, many frie nds.

Do something or do nothing at all, but just for this moment give 'thanks' to your divine creator for just being alive! That is the one thing you can do for us, thanks again for all your support."
