Joey's fight with Leukemia

After being diagnosed with leukemia, We knew this amazing kid would have a tough road. But on the first night after his diagnosis,Joey suffered a stroke. After surviving this, the second night doctors found holes in his heart. He made it through this then on the fourth night they discovered several portions of his brain were bleeding.

After the first week was over and overcoming the odds, doctors expected him to be hospitalized for 28 days, receiving chemotherapy. However, a biopsy revealed he had cancer in his bone marrow as well as his spinal cord. Because of this, he will be hospitalized for the next 6 months receiving chemotherapy. Joey hasn't even turned 2 and has a long road ahead.

Any contribution, prayerful or monetary, you can make to help this family with their hour and a half drive to the hospital, the added expense of childcare for their older son,as well as all their other expenses is much appreciated.

Thank you for your support!
