You go to work everyday...you're a good parent, friend, sibling, coworker, citizen, husband, wife, son or daughter..maybe you go to church every Sunday..you donate to charity..you pay your bills on time...you rescued a kitten out of a tree. You think I'm a good person, I have Karma on my side or God protects good people....Well Guess What? Cancer doesn't care.
Have you ever watched the news and seen a story of someone doing something awful and thought the worst things should happen to that person or maybe you can't stand going to the gas station because there's always some junkie pan handling or robbing someone for their next fix and you think karma will catch up with them...Well Guess What? This isn't rock, paper, scissors...Karma doesn't beat cancer...Cancer still doesn't care.
If being good was a shield against anything bad that could happen to you then Joey would still be here.
Joey lost his battle with brain cancer on his 48th birthday June 21st 2011. He fought one hell of a fight trying to remain here with his family and friends. Joey's time here on earth was much too short and he will be missed dearly. I am grateful for the 30 years he was a part of my life. My brother from another mother, my hero and friend.
This isn't meant to sound negative, it's reality.....the only way WE will ever beat Cancer of any kind is by raising awareness along with funds to provide research in finding a cure.
Together we can help someone else from suffering through a merciless battle and give them a chance to win the war...
