Perfect weather for giving
For the Appeal
Joey Cusumano turned 11 in April, but he didn’t spend it eating cake and having fun. Joey was in Oakland, Calif., at the Children’s Hospital, fighting for his life.
You can read the daily journal written by his mother, Roseanne, and realize how extremely hard it must be for this amazing young man and his loving parents.
When you sit and read these journals, you see the ups and downs of chemotherapy, hair loss, and separation from your friends. Please take a moment to remember how lucky you are.
Some amazing women, including Mary Kuckenmeister and Sue Lamon, are helping to organize a city rummage sale to offset the family’s major medical, travel and food expenses.
“This is a great kid who deserves everything we can give,” Lamon said.
