I love this family!  Joe, Amber and Caroline are a sweet, beautiful, and compassionate family.  Joe has been pursuing his dream of playing goalkeeper in the professional soccer league.  He is currently playing for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and suffered a significant injury in his last game.  His leg is broken in two places, a break on the front side of the fibula and the back side of his ankle.  He is going to need surgery in order to stabalize his ankle.  This injury will put him out of commission for a significant amount of time.  Joe not only plays soccer for a living, he has side jobs to supplement his income in order support his beautiful wife, Amber and their beautiful daughter, Caroline.  Joe will not be able to hold the private keeper camps he does or keep the extra job he did for additional income to support his family due to this injury. 

The Nasco's will need some financial assistance while Joe is recovering.  Donations will support them by helping them keep up with their living expenses during his recovery.  Any amount - no matter how small - helps. Please GIVE now.  I know that Joe and his family will greatly appreciate any donation you can generously give.

If you would like to send a gift card or a get well card to Joe you can send them to:

I received this update from Amber today:

Hi!!! It has almost been a week since surgery and we are at home and doing well! Joe was determined to get to the game this past weekend and we got to get out of the house and support the guys! He is doing well so far and is moving around very well with the help of his crutches. We spoke with the doctor yesterday and he goes for a follow up appointment on May 12. During that appointment, the doctor will remove the stiches and decided what type of cast he will put back on. Joe is really hoping for a boot so he can begin rehab asap. We have had many people ask how long will Joe be out and the doctor said if everything goes smoothly with his recovery, he is looking at a 6 month recovery time! I know my husband very well and he is determined to cut that recovery time in half! I am positive that he will do whatever it takes to get back out on that field as soon as possible!! Please continue to pray for him, the trainers and doctors to make the right decisions on his recovery so that he can get back out there 100%. Thank you all so much for your donations and love and support that you have shown our family! We appreciate every single one of you!!

This is an update from Amber .......We are home from the hospital today. The doctor did not feel comfortable doing surgery today due to swelling from his flights home. Surgery will be Wednesday morning. The damage was worse than we originally thought, not only did he have the ankle fracture, he tore ligaments and dislocated it. They will be placing a plate with screws as well as sutures to bring his tibia and fibula closer together. He will go non weight bearing for at least 2 months and the doctor said it will be a long time before he can get back to playing in the goal. We appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers as well as the calls, the texts, and the messages!!
