Please pause from your hurried lives and learn about my neighbor Joey Gruber. Joey is a beautiful, warm and happy 3 ½ year old boy that lives on my street with his parents Mike and Stacey and his dog Bella. Last year, Joey was diagnosed with brain cancer. He and his parents have exhausted every treatment avenue available to them only to see his condition continually deteriorate. The Gruber Family is trying everything and yet little Joey can now barely walk. As I watch my children and the neighborhood kids play on our street, I look to the corner house, where Joey rests, hoping against odds that he will join the rest of the kids on this beautiful spring afternoon. Instead, today I find the MRI results we were all hopeful would show a miracle, instead show the relentless progression of this wretched disease. So it is on this beautiful, peaceful afternoon, that I ask each of you to pause for a moment and think about Joey, Mike and Stacey.
Thank you for your time,
