“Joe’s Last Wish” Fundraiser Aims To Ensure Norland Resident Can Spend His Few Remaining Days With Family

According to a fundraiser started to help him fulfill that wish Joe has had a rough few years.

“We all know Joe has not had the best luck with his health. Having gone through not one but two kidney transplants as well as multiple skin cancer lesions removed, it is hard to believe there is anything this man can’t overcome!” said the Go Fund Me campaign. “Unfortunately, his most recent battle with Cancer is going to be his last. The doctors have advised us that Joe’s battle will likely end in the next “3-6 months, closer to 3 months”.

The organizers hope to be able to cover his spouses lost income and other financial strains during this difficult time.

“We wish we could have a benefit dance instead of a GoFundMe so that you all could see Joe and witness his positivity and ability to keep smiling despite this dismal news. Unfortunately, due to COVID that is not a possibility.” the campaign states.

Go Fund Me has become a more popular choice for fundraising as other methods are no longer allowed due to physical distancing and stay-at-home orders.
