The Williams family was featured on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." Jeremy Williams has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The fatal condition, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

Earlier this year, Jennifer Williams learned she had breast cancer.

Their son, Jacob, has spina bifida and uses a wheelchair. They also have a daughter, Josie.

"This community has supported our family throughout this journey. Having this free concert is a way we can give back some love," Jeremy Williams, the former head football coach at Greenville High School, said in a text message to the Ledger-Enquirer.
