The family and friends of Joe Ray Marin are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against stomach cancer. Please show your support!

Joe Ray Marin is a loving husband to his wife Virginia, and father of 2-- an 8 year old sweetie named JuliAnn and a 5 year old vivacious boy named Joe Ray. He's worked hard for all he and his family has and loves them more than anything. He's only 32 years old has battled stomach cancer for the past 3 years. Since 2009, Joe has suffered through numerous treatments to battle this devastating disease. He currently supports a J tube due to his inability to eat enough to sustain his body without support, and has not been able to gain enough weight to sustain further treatment at this time. While the family has not and will not give up hope, what he needs now continous medical support to keep control of his rising symptoms. Not only is he at a tough point in this battle physically, but the family struggles financially to do all they can for him. Medical bills and difficulties with insurance are a very real part of this battle. Despite the struggles the family faces emotionally and Joe Ray faces physically, they embrace each moment they have together with love and joy. What we are trying to do is relieve as much financial stress so the family will have a sense of peace in that realm as they continue the fight. Joe Ray at this point in time is in the process of having to give up his work, and his wife Virginia then bears the responsibility of bringing in enough income to sustain the family. Please show your support by donating to this fund that will assist them with these expenses and sending them words of encouragement as they face this head on day to day. Thank you for all your support and prayers -- we know miracles happen and will continue to pray for one to come by the Marin family!
