A truck for Joe!

Hello friends, family and anyone who may come across this page! I would like to introduce you to my very good friend Joe. He has become a very close friend and more like family to me over the past 5 years after meeting him when I took over for my mom at the shop after her passing. He is a Vietnam War veteran and after serving our country he continued and continues to serve the community by teaching and mentoring in the field of Radiography. He is one of the most giving and caring individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He would literally give you the shirt off his back if needed! 

Unfortunately Joe has recently been struck with a bit of bad luck at the worst of timing. Early Monday morning his truck and only mode of transportation was hit and totaled while parked in front of his home by a speeding driver who was hit after another driver ran a stop sign. Additionally, Joe has health issues that result in him having to go to multiple appointments throughout the month, some as far as Loma Linda at the VA Hospital or even Orange County. 

I created this GoFundMe account to help cover expenses for a new truck that his insurance doesn’t cover. I understand with the holidays just passing and incomes being restricted during this pandemic that donating toward the cause may not be in the budget, but any amount big or small would be greatly appreciated! If you are more comfortable donating through Venmo, PayPal or directly to me (if I know you personally) I can send you the info to set that up! 

In addition, if anyone has any leads on a reliable used truck for a decent price, please send the information my way! 

Thank you so much in advance!
