The life of Joe

Hello everyone!

As many of you are aware, Joe is in his final days of life at Hospice of NW Ohio, after almost a year of battling a very fast spreading cancer.

Joe is leaving behind a wonderful and loving wife, son and little girl and I'm asking for a favor from a stranger, friend, family member or loved one to help Lisa and her family with the costs of everything she will incur while going through this process.

A quick background of their life and the life over the last year:

Joe and Lisa were married roughly 5 years ago and were living their happiest life as newlyweds. Just a couple short years after, they welcomed their daughter into this world, Lindley.

Over the last couple years, they bought the house of their dreams, Lisa was able to maintain a stay at home mother and Joe maintained his business, while tending to be a great father and husband.

A little less than a year ago, Joe became sick and didn't think twice of it, but as the weeks went on, they found him to have cancer. As the year went on, he had undergone treatment and thought he was on the uphill of his battle, and then life took a turn for the worst. Joe was found to have a tumor on his brain, removed and again, they thought things were in remission. Over the last month, the doctors informed Joe the cancer had spread to his brain and his hope was no longer there. Joe is fighting, but can't keep up and has been admitted into hospice over the last week. Joe is just in his late 40s.

I wrote this story as Lisa and her family hold a very special place in my heart. Lisa will be left behind as a single mother, home to maintain and left blind sided as her and her family were not prepared for any of this.

I'm asking you to please share this story, share with your friends, family or loved ones. Have one less night out this week, eat out one less time this week, and help this family out. Everything and anything will help!

Thank you all for your support and graciousness during this time of need.
