Until being diagnosed with cancer approximately two weeks ago, Joel worked full time and supported himself while finishing his Master’s degree in Business Administration.
After being treated for sciatic nerve pain with no relief, Joel decided to visit a neurologist. Upon doing an MRI the neurologist informed him that he had a tumor in his right femur bone and a biopsy was needed. While Joel waited for the appointment to have the tumor biopsied, he unfortunately fell and broke his right femur bone where the tumor is in his leg. The results of the biopsy are now back, and show the tumor is malignant and the type is Ewing’s Sarcoma.
Joel underwent surgery almost a week ago, to have a steel plate and screws put in place to secure his broken femur in order to get him mobile, so he can start his chemo.
Joel is a fighter and is remaining extremely positive. He will not be able to work during his chemo treatments and will need help with medical and living expenses. I have created this Gofundme to help raise money for Joel’s expenses. Please help us take some of the burden off of Joel, so he can focus on recovering!
Thank you for visiting and whether you are able to donate or not, prayers are welcomed, needed and appreciated!
