My Story

Joey was a normal 7 year old boy with 2 older sisters. He loved to ride his bike, play video games and play on the monkeybars at the park. Red was his favorite color and his favorite times were always spent snuggling on the couch by his mom. In April of 2005, Joey came home from school and was walking off balance and slurring his speech. We took him to the ER where an MRI showed a tumor located on his brain stem. Joey fought for 6 months with tremendous support from friends, family and the community before earning his wings in November of the same year. Although his time with us was short, we know that he lived more in the last 6 months of his life than many people do in a lifetime. We are thankful for all of the support that we were given as a family and we are proud to be a part of St. Baldricks.
