This past September, Joseph was admitted to Saratoga Hospital with severe back pain. Thinking he had strained his muscles lifting crates of apples, he received the frightening diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer.Joseph is a native of Jamaica, and for the past 18 years has been working several months each year at Saratoga Apple in Schuylerville. All who know Joseph can testify of his generous nature, his diligent work ethic, and his infectious smile. He has been supporting his extended family in Jamaica since age 14. Now it is time for us to support him.
March, 2015 update: Joseph continues to receive medical treatment for his prostate cancer with treatment and drugs that are not available to him in Jamaica. However, the funds remaining from our efforts in 2013 and 2014 are dwindling, and donations are needed for Joseph's day to day living expenses while he is here in the U.S.
Below is some video from the November 2nd 2013 fundraiser. Thanks to all who attended!
