Jay A. Blum was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but moved to the sun-kissed shores of South Florida at the age of three. As an adult, Jay had the privilege to live and work in twenty countries, five U.S. states, four aircraft carriers, three submarines and four Indian Reservations.
Diagnosed with late stage Hodgkin's Disease in his 20's and Renal Cell Carcinoma in his 40's, cancer ultimately took his thyroid, both of his kidneys and 85% of his vision. As such, Jay reluctantly had to retire from his traveling circus. Now as a card carrying member of the Georgia Writer’s Association, Non-Fiction Author's Association, National Writers Union and The Author’s Guild, Jay now lives with his wife, son and dog Bracha (Hebrew for Blessing) while writing from the comfort of his home in a quaint and small town in Georgia.
In addition to writing, Jay travels the globe proudly speaking to intimate groups and packed lecture halls about not giving up the fight. About living with cancer. About living without kidneys and the failures and successes of being on dialysis and how to advocate for your rights as a patient and a human being against the medical community.
Jay works with many fine organizations that help him to tell his story and ultimately help others live better lives while dealing with a terminal illness. Jay is a patient advocate for these organizations and helps inform others about how these organizations have helped save his life. If you would like to schedule Jay to speak to your organization, dialysis facility, patients or staff. please contact him through his publisher, Blind Author Publishing.

Over the Ocean and to the Links: A Golfer's Journey
by Blind Author Publishing
The purpose in writing this book was to inspire, and guide, other solitary or small groups of golfers to follow their dreams and experience the unique joy of golf in Scotland. I am just a regular working guy, not wealthy or well to do, just a person who clips store coupons for the local grocery store and simply enjoys the game of golf.
