Hello my name is Joel Brown Newman.Some of my buddies knew me as Barney. I am from Freeburg Pennsylvania. I'm raising money for stem cell therapy for my Parkinson's disease. I also have had two back surgeries, two neck surgeries, left knee replaced and I've had a right knee and left foot problems. I must use a walker or wheelchair to get around most of the time. And can no longer work. I'm hoping friends and family and the wrestling community will help so I can have a better quality of life

I am an Avid Penn State wrestling and football fan. I wrestled 2 years in high school, my 10th grade and Senior year. Missing my junior year due to injury. Inthe summerof 1981, I qualified for the Pennsylvania freestyle and Greco-Roman All Star Wrestling team. I managed to become a high school All-American placeing 4th in Iowa City. My senior yearof high school wrestling I
managed to place third that 167  Pennsylvania Wrestling Championships. Wrestling the tournament unbeknownst to me with a broken arm.I had numerous injuries in college.In 1984 I won the freestyle Greco Roman Eastern Nationooal Wrestling Championshipsat Lehigh University. I followed up with a second place and third-place finish at Lake Placid New York for the 20 and Under World trials. Like a lot of .Wrestling competitors, I never accomplished all of my goals.But I can say,the sport of wrestling has introduced me to many fine people, from competitors, coaches and fans. It has also taught me never to give up, I would greatly appreciate,some financial help in order to get the stem cell treatments.. thank you for reading this, greatly appreciate the help, thank you Joel Brown Newman,. Barney. Some photos below of happier times of wrestling..
