Joe Roberts - Stage 4 Colon Cancer

Joseph Roberts was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer last week and he has no health insurance. On top of this devastating situation, Joe was recently forced from his home and separated from his children (who are just babies) and the mother of his children  (due to regulations related to public housing). So, right now Joe is homeless and living on the streets of Fort Lauderdale. He urgently needs access to funds so he can adequately deal with the  life-threatening challenge he is facing!

Joe is a great guy, a great friend to many and he is a hard worker, taking on just about any kind of work over the years, to keep his family fed. He is a proud guy, to be sure - but right now - HE is the one who needs help! No donation is too small. Whether you know Joe or not, we ask that you feel compassion for his desperate situation and help, if you can!

Imagine, being on the street, forced to separate from your family and then getting kicked in the gut with a STAGE 4 CANCER DIAGNOSIS, with no health insurance! Clearly, Joe is really down on his luck right now and he desperately needs a helping hand.

As his friends, our number one concern is getting a roof over his head, so that he can properly fight for his life, which is the very real struggle he has in front of him. The funds raised in this campaign will be used to get Joe a place to live. As soon as that hurdle is cleared, whatever funds remain (or are raised) will be used to make sure Joe sees the proper Doctors and can get access to whatever life saving treatment may be available for his cancer.

This GoFundMe campaign is LITERALLY about saving a life. Please help, right away if you can. Joe will be eternally grateful to all who donate.
