Joey ' s medical and funeral fund




My brother Joseph Cook who will be 59 on October 30, 2014.  Has been diagnosed with Brain Cancer this past August and has been given six months to live according to his team of doctors.  Joey is a very strong and proud man that has worked his whole life to support his family.  He is now incapable to care for their daily needs,  his portion of insurance coverage and his own funeral expenses.  Joey has no life insurance and when he found out about his illness, he became  insurable. My brother is a Vietnam Veteran who proudly defended our country.  He has just been let go of his job as a limousine driver due to his illness.  Losing his job has left his family with only his wife's income which is being reduced every time she has to take time off to care for Joey.  They are struggling each and every day to pay the rent,  bills or too put the money towards his upcoming funeral expenses.  They are trying everything to keep all their problems from their beautiful eleven year old daughter who is trying to be so brave going to the hospital with her mother everyday to see her daddy,  I hate to think about the hurt she is going to have to go through in the next couple weeks or months to come. Please find it in your heart to help my brother and his family during his last days.  Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
