Please Help My Cousin Joe

Joe Dockery, 36, is my cousin. Father of two beautiful girls. One is handicapped with Fucosidosis. Joe is the only 'breadwinner' in this family. Cheryl, Joe's wife, is a full-time stay at home momma to their two daughters.
The last few months, Joe has been complaining of pain in his belly. It was so debilitating to him that he would make frequent trips to the emergency room with no cure.
Last week, my cousin Joe ended up in ICU! He is in Sepsis due to a leaky Gall Bladder. 

Yesterday(12-17-17), he was placed on an (emergency)heart transplant list. His heart is only beating less than 20, and he is very weak. The doctors are not giving us a lot of hope.

Last night(12-17-17), they found a blood clot in his heart. They were supposed to put a catheter in this morning.

We had been told that he was going to have his gallbladder removed today. Not sure if they will continue with the gallbladder removal or not.

This has been a great shock to his immediate family as well as his extended family.

Even with all of this going on the bills are piling up and there is NO income.

Remember this is Christmas time when families get together to celebrate and fellowship. Think of Joe and his family while you are sitting with yours.

If you can find it in your heart to help the Dockery family, we would be more than grateful and blessed!

Joe & Cheryl are a proud people and would never ask for help especially from strangers. I just love my cousin so much that I had to do something to help his family. Joe is the type of guy who would give his last buck out of his pocket if he thought it would help someone else! He is a sweet heart of a man.

Thank you for your generous donation to Joe's family. Every little bit will help $5-$1,000! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
