Living strong for Big Joe

Many of you know Big Joe Franceschini, and if you don't, you've heard stories about him through his kids or friends. What was supposed to be a routine appendectomy, turned into a real life nightmare and we're asking for your help. Recently, Joe was diagnosed with a rare type cancer that requires biweekly treatments at Sloan Kettering. If you've ever met Big Joe or any of the Franceschini family, you would know they would never ask for help nor expect it. We feel that there is no other family that deserves the help more than them. We've all faced challenges and we've all received support from our friends and loved ones and Big Joe should be no exception. Whatever you can do to help this family out while they deal with the financial burden of making sure their dad, husband, son, uncle and friend has the best opportunity to beat this, would be greatly appreciated. LiveSTRONG.

Thank you for the support,
Pete Gudzak and RJ Johansen
