Jen here again from Team #JoeStrong.
I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all spent a somber weekend reflecting on the latest post. It’s been difficult to find the right words, to figure out how we can help. I have heard from many of you asking how to help. Many have shared some great ideas and we hope to be rolling those out soon. But there is an immediate way you can help the Clark family. We are tired of talking about medical bills and travel expenses. Those are there, but at the same time, life is short – let’s not worry about the bills!
It’s time to send the Clark’s on a great vacation! On Joe’s bucket-list, taking Amanda to Chicago to see the Chicago Blackhawks play. He wants to show her why he loves them, and the sport, so much. So they are planning to head out THIS WEEK to freezing Chicago to spend a night with the Blackhawks and visit some family and friends. They have to move fast because Chemo starts on Monday, and the doctors are planning to be very aggressive with treatment. (Monday will also be #JoeStrong day – so wear your blue and send your photos using the hashtag so we can see all of your support- details below!!!)
But as you know, it’s not cheap. Here’s where you come in.
Give what you can. Give knowing that the money is going to make memories for a family trying to live life to its fullest before dealing with chemo.
Click on this paypal link. Give $5…or $50…or $500. All of the money is directly in the hands of Amanda and Joe and let’s all hope they can spend the weekend without just one thing to worry about…..money. Because, after all, it’s all about #living.
And please join us for #JoeStrong Day on Monday, March 10. Wear your blue and snap a selfie showing your support with the hashtag, #JoeStrong. When Joe goes to chemo, he’s stuck in a chair with his iPad. Let’s overwhelm him with support from around the country! Spread the word!
