Dedicating his own life to serving others facing medical treatment, now we give back to Joe Lemons as he faces brain cancer treatment

Joseph Lemons is a devoted and loving husband, father and friend. Joey is always there to lend an unequivocal helping hand to friends, neighbors and family alike, no matter what...

In December of 2010 Joey was diagnosed with glioma cancer of the brain stem. Ironically now ill himself, Joseph dedicated his life to the service of others in their critical time of need by working in the medical field at Jefferson University Hospital as a CNA Certified Nursing Assistant. So now Joe needs our help!

Joseph has been through several treatments of chemo, which in turn of course led to other problems, not only furthering the obvious and devastating physical hindrances, but also leading to substantial financial difficulties given that he has since lost his job. Hence during this uttermost difficult time for Joe and his loved ones, we at least hope to assist him and his family with the one burden we can -- the medical expenses, so he has one less problem to worry about and can focus on the MOST important thing, GETTING BETTER!

Please join us in helping our good friends, Joe, his wife and three children! Please donate whatever you can to this great member of society and help him get back on his feet. Anything will be greatly appreciated.

Here's an interesting and upbeat tidbit about Joe: Joe is an AVID FAN of ALL Philadelphia sports (i.e. Phillies, Flyers, 76'ers, Eagles) Wouldn't it be wonderful if any one of his teams gave him a token of their appreciation for his unconditional support to lend support to him? We'd love to have something to raffle to raise money... or even for him to keep close to his heart as he undergoes his treatment. This would mean the world to him!

Just a note: We are having a "Beef and Beer" event to raise money as well. This event is located in Philadelphia. If you're in the area and would like to go, tickets are $35 but must be paid in advance in order to plan the amount of food and beverage for everyone. But time is of the essence since the date is very close, June 22, 2012!! Please refer to the event's Facebook page for further information: https://www.facebook.com/events/250704245027175/ Please help make this event a success! Joe is very much looking forward to joining you to meet him in person!

Thank you once again. And remember, life is a "GIVE and TAKE"; GIVE thanks and TAKE nothing for granted.

Sincerely,

The "Friends of Joe Lemons Glioma Brain Cancer Support Group"
