This fundraiser is closed. Thank you for your support!
This page has been created to update all of Joe's friends on his health situation and what we can do to help him in his time of need. 

After a gig in late 2012 Joe went home and found he was having difficulty breathing He was rushed to the hospital where he had a quadruple bypass. He also learned that he had cardiomyopathy and would need a heart transplant. Both Joe's father and brother had died of this disease.

Financially, Joe is between a rock and a hard place as his medicines cost him $1000 a month and he hasn't been able to work since the bypass. If you can not attend the fundraiser ,please consider a donation now of whatever you are comfortable with to give Joe a helping hand.
