Joseph Bleeded

Joseph Bleeded's wish has been granted go to a Chicago Blackhawks hockey game and out to dinner with his family.

Joe's sister requested this gift for him.  Joe, is 55 years old. He and his children have had a tough time of things. In 2012, Joe's wife, Mary, died of breast cancer at the age of 44, leaving Joe to raise their then 9-year old son and their then 5-year old daughter.

In 2016, Joe was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that mestastasized to his brain. Joe underwent radiation and chemotherapy.

In 2018, the cancer started to grow again. Joe had brain surgery to remove the active cancer cells and the scar tissue caused by the radiation. Afterwards, Joe started back on chemotherapy, but had to stop because it drove his red blood cells too low. Joe now gets Keytruda treatments every 3 weeks. Joe is 6'1 and is down to 140 pounds. Joe was hospitalized again in October to remove an obstruction from scar tissue that prevented him from eating for 10 days.

Cancer has really hit Joe and his family hard. Six other family members have dealt with, died from, or are currently dealing with cancer.

His physical condition has severely hurt his financial position. Joe's kids are now 15 and 11 and are struggling with the many losses they have already endured.
