Joe's Journey
My name is Joe Reeder. I'm 52 years , I have a wife, three children and two grandkids. This is our journey.
November 14, 2013 , Came home from, eat supper ,then got in bed to rest and watch a football game. Shortly after getting in bed, I started coughing up blood. I nervously went and got my wife to call 911. First the volunteer fire dept. in about 10 minutes, and the about 40 minutes the ambulance arrived, rushing me to the hospital. There the Drs decided to remove my lower left lung.
One month later I was diagnosed to have Stage 4 Synovial Sarcoma that had mastisized in my left lung. Synovial Sarcoma is an extremely rare cancer, about 2% of the earth's population has it. This cancer is usually found in the bones and joints of younger people.
Almost 2 years later and 4 chemo treatments later, None have prevailed. It has been very difficult on my family as well. Everything they do now revolves around taking care of me and getting me to my appointments every week.
Though months of research and prayers, my family has found an Oncologist/Facility that has been treating terminal cancer patients with promising results. One of the therapies we are excited about is high dosages of Vitamin C infusions with low dosages of Chemo. Studies have shown remarkable results.
In order to get this treatments, My wife and I are required to stay a month in Arizona under the care of an Oncologist.
Unfortunately our insurance won't cover these treatments. We are asking anyone who is moved by our story to help us with donations and prayer.
Thank you and God Bless,
The Reeder Family
