A chance at a better life for Joe. The funds could save and change his life. Every dollar will help, and will be spent soley on his medical

Joe was diagnosed 3 weeks after our wedding with a very rare tumor in the seminal vesicles. This tumor is so rare that there are only 51 documented cases ever known of. The doctor that diagnosed it, advised us, "he never thought he would see on in his career." Joe and I, were married and baptised on August 27th 2011. Together, we have six beautiful children together. He used to be an IBEW electrician, until 2008 when he took a fall and hurt his back. He can't be released back to work. Because of this, we lost our medical insurance. Joe is now a full-time student, and is going back to school to become an Electrical Engineer. He finally went to the doctor because of severe abdominal pain, which we thought was a hernia. Later that night we found out that he has a large grapefruit sized tumor in the seminal vesicle. We were quickly scheduled for a biospy, which came back inconclusive as to whether it is cancer or not. The tumor has attached itself to the prostate and the bladder. Joe needs to see specialists in robotic surgery, but no one will take his case because we can't afford to pay for it up front. Also, the specialist are in California and we live in Washington. We are going to need help with medical funds and with cost of travel. So right now, we are trying to get any help we can. I refuse to loose my husband to this, or watch him suffer with something that can be fixed.
