The Family and Friends of Joe Torcivia are uniting to raise money to help him fight against brain cancer. Please show your support!.

Hello everyone,

I am Joe and this is my site, so let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a very strong and positive individual whose primary focus is to succeed in life. On top of it all I always love to help others out whenever I can. My life took an unexpected direction and now I am asking for your help.

February 18, 2012- While sleeping I experienced a generalized tonic-clonic seizure. I was taken immediately by ambulance to the Froedtert Emergency Department, where imaging revealed a well defined homogeneously hypodense lesion measuring approximately 49x37 mm in size in the left orbito-frontal and peri-insular region.

February 27, 2012- I underwent a left craniotomy and biopsy of the mass. Surgery was performed and pathology revealed a grade 2-3 astrocytoma (brain cancer). There is a small mass that has not yet been operated on near my spine which gives it a possible stage 3 rating.

*This was a brief summary of my story however;  My Giveforward account will keep you updated on my current health status and will inform you of any upcoming benefits. If you have any additional resources, suggestions for my webpage or any questions you would like to ask me please feel free to do so.
