Ed and Susan Bain ask you to help raise urgently needed funds for their good friends Joe and Deb Vespers medical care.

We became good friends with Joe Vesper and his wife Deb in the early 90s. Joe is an excellent horse player and one of two players named Joe that has my respect for being the best physical looks handicappers there is.

I always knew when Monmouth’s racetrack opening day was because Joe sent me his annual e-mail about his beloved track and this being his favorite day of the year.

Joe wrote several articles for American Turf Monthly Magazine and many for me through the years for my Newsletter where Joe severed as editor from 2005 through 2008 when he could no longer continue to serve due to his on going battle with cancer as well as his wife Deb’s weakening health.

Due to their ailing health Joe and Deb had to move to an assisted living facility 2 years ago and in February of this year Deb went into the hospital where she requires 24 hour oxygen and care. Her benefits ran out and they sent her home last week where she has an in home care giver that is costing Joe and Deb out of pocket $168 a day. At this same time Joe’s cancer has spread to the other lung and top of the liver. He is going to try to be treated at the Fox Chase Cancer Hospital and has an appointment the end of second week in July. Joe may not be able to afford this treatment as he said today “We’re giving Deb’s care giver our money for food. This is going to financially break us. We checked everything and there is no way out.”

Susan and I are asking for your help and our goal is to raise $30,000 for Joe and Deb because $168 a day for Deb’s care will cost this much through the rest of this year. Please help our friend Joe and his wife Deb.
