Help for Joel

32853652_1536601201777491_r.jpegMy son Joel was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. He works full-time in order to support his family and his daughter recently went away to college in South Carolina to a University which is expensive. The family relies on Joel's income to support her education.

Joel will be undergoing surgey this month, on the 19th, to remove the tumor. The doctors are hopeful for his recovery, but as we know when it comes to any type of tumor or cancer it is unpredictable. He will be out of work for several months for recovery and is in need of assistance for his mounting medical bills, as well as his family's day to day living expenses.

This is a scary time for our family and while we know it is in God's hands we are taking things day by day. Any amount will help and we appreciate everything and please pray for the doctors hands. We love you all.
