Anyone that has ever met our brother knows that there are not many people in this world that are as beautiful and kind as he is. He is always lending a hand to anyone that needs him and doing it with a smile on his face. He never misses an opportunity to show his love and support to everyone he knows. Unfortunately, he needs all of us now.
Joe sadly suffered a significant seizure last night. After tests, the doctors found a very large cyst/tumor taking up nearly a quarter of his brain which ruptured. He was then transferred to RWJ Surgical ICU where he is being monitored and awaiting surgery.
As some of you may or may not know, Joe was laid off right before Christmas and shortly after buying a new home. He is no longer covered under his insurance and is between plans so this entire mess may not be covered, obviously causing significant medical costs. I am sure his wonderful wife will need to take plenty of time off of work to care for him which couldn't come at a worse time for them, with Joe currently out of work. She will need money for gas, parking, eating out daily, taking care of their normal financial responsibilities, and extra care for our sweet Lily.
No one loves his family more than our brother. His wife and daughter especially, are his entire universe and I know that he is under extreme stress worrying about finding a new job and now all of this.
If any of you can find it in your hearts to please join us in supporting our JoJo, we would be forever grateful. This is very hard for us to ask for help but we want to make sure that Joe, Lily and Heather are well taken care of when they need us the most but of course there is only so much that we can do. We thank you in advance and appreciate any and all the help you can give to one of the most amazing people on this earth......our heart, our JoJo.
We love you so much JoJo, Heather and our sweet LilyGirl. We are here for you and will do anything we can to get you all over this hurdle.
Love Always & Forever,
Randi, Henry, Denise, Rob, Anthony, Brandy and all of you loving nieces and nephews who adore you to the ends of the earth
