As you may have heard, right at the start of his Junior year at Walled Lake Central High School, Joe Burr was diagnosed with leukemia. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy to fend off acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or ALL. ALL is the most common childhood cancer and it occurs when a bone marrow cell develops errors in its DNA.
Joe is a fabulous student, a gifted athlete and a loyal friend. We all know him as the kid with a massive smile and a generous heart. He and his family are naturally proud, private and independent people but under these difficult circumstances...they need our help!
Kindly consider sending him a letter of encouragement or a card (his 16th Birthday is coming up on 9/29!!) to this address: 1237 Amarillo, Wolverine Lake, MI 48390
And, if you can, please donate to help offset the cost of his treatments. No donation is too small and all would be greatly appreciated!
Please keep Joe in your thoughts and in your prayers!
