Joey was diagnosed with Pre-B ALL on Oct 3, 2011. He was 8 years old at diagnosis. He has endured very intensive chemo treatments, hospital stays and countless numbers of spinal taps. While this should have broken him down, it only strengthened his Faith in God and made his will to live stronger.
His smile lights up a room and his ability to really live each and everyday is amazing. He loves hanging out with his older brother Chris who is 13 and his younger sister Mia who is 6. He has 2 dogs that love him to pieces. He loves Legos and anything he can get his hands on to read.
He is currently in the maintenance phase of therapy and he is 6 months away from completing his treatment. Hugs for Brady is an organization that Joey is proud to be a part of.
