Joey Valenti is in the battle of his life. Please show your support and join us in our effort to raise funds for his medical expenses.

On October 15, 2010, Joey was diagnosed with lung cancer, just one month after his youngest son, Travis' surgery to remove a brain tumor (benign). Needless to say, this was devastating news to the Valenti Family especially with the stress of his son's situation. Joey's doctors quickly developed a treatment plan of six rounds of chemotherapy combined with radiation. He underwent one round (3 days) per month for six months combined with radiation. Many times during his treatment, Joey felt he was not going to make it through due to becoming so ill from the chemo as well as a tremendous loss of strength and stamina. In the end, however, the treatments worked and his cancer went into remission.

In August, 2011, Joey began having fainting spells, so bad at times he would wake up on the floor not knowing how long he had been out. He bruised his leg, hip, and side in one fall really bad. After reporting the spells to his doctor, an MRI was performed on his brain, which revealed cancer to be present. Again, Joey and his family were devastated. In addition to his brain, further testing revealed the cancer has spread to his adrenal glands, lymph nodes, and back in his lungs. The doctor gave Joey two options: 1) aggressive radiation to the his brain followed by chemo, which would give him a great chance at life, or 2) go home to die.

Joey elects to fight! He is in the fight of his life, for his life. He needs your help though. Cancer treatments are very expensive and being retired on disability due to back problems, Joey needs some assistance with the bills as well as his living expenses.

We want Joey to focus on his fight and not have to worry about the financial end. In addition, we do not want his children to worry either. Joey is the father of two wonderful sons (Nolan & Travis) and JoPa to three adorable grandchildren (Jaedon, Tripp, and Harper).

Please join us... donate today! Whether it's $10 or $100... together, in strength and numbers, we are helpling to make each day a better one for Joey and his family. We appreciate the support, as it allows Joey to focus all his energy and strength on WINNING his battle.
