Joey is a 16 year old boy who has been fighting brain cancer for many years. Throughout his short life time he has accomplished so much. He has been a dedicated friend to many, a star football player and teammate but more importantly a supportive brother and loving son to his mom. Joeys mom and sister have dedicated their lives to be there in every step of Joeys fight to survive cancer while always managing to keep a smile on their faces and giving smiles to others. They are truly a unique and loving family that anyone who knows them would know they were blessed to be a part of their life.
Tonight at 10:27 PM Joey lost his battle to cancer while in his favorite place to be...at home with his mom and sister. Due to the years of medical expenses, doctor bills and just surviving in todays world has not been easy. Joey's mom has given up everything to be there and care for her son. As a single mom for many years she has amazed and enpowered many showing her dedication to her family - even losing a job didnt matter as long as she was there for her son and her daughter. This gofundme is being set up to try and lessen the struggle for this great family in need. The entire town will want to show their respect and admiration for Joey at his funeral but his mom wont be able to do this on her own. Please please help us raise money to help her pay for Joeys medical, funeral and burial. Every little bit counts and will be greatly appreciated.
