Unfortunately our friend's Joe & Jill Connell Russo family has had a devistating reality hit their home. Joe Russo has been diagnosed with stage 4 Esophegeal cancer and serocis of the liver due to low platelids. He got sick a few weeks back and found this information out at Hackensack hospital. Unfortunately he has had this cancer for several years and did not know it. He is now at the Philadelphia Cancer Treatment Center of American and has been advised that due to the Liver issue he is not eligible for the amount of Chemo he would need. The Liver damage is caused by the low platelid levels he has had for a long time, which we now find out was low because he had cancer. That the medical professionals did not pick up on. The cancer is also inoperable. So all they can do is pain management at this point.
His insurance does not cover the cancer treatments. And on top of that he is the family's sole source of income. They have 3 boys all in college and very young grandson that they take care of. Jill is disabled with agoraphobia. So i am asking for help for their family because I know that she doesnt feel comfortable asking for help. But they need the money to help offset medical expenses as well as household expenses. Please donate whatever you feel comfortable with. Anything helps.
Please be sure to share this link on facebook and twitter to spread the word and help The Russo family!
