The Story

Joey has been a great friend and colleague to many of us.  She is battling her 3rd round with brain cancer.  Joey first became aware of her cancer some 8 years ago at which time she underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.  The section removed from her brain was considerable and left her no option for any additional surgeries should a reoccurrence happen.  She enjoyed a few years in remission but her cancer aggressively returned in 2011. 

Joey went through a tough regimen at John Hopkins in Baltimore, MD with daily treatments of radiation and chemotherapy for five consecutive weeks.  She has a setback after the 3rd treatment when she suffered multi seizures leaving her speech impaired and limited ability to use her right hand.  Even so, Joey has never lost her smile.

Her dedicated husband, Kevin Selner, and the rest of her Super Friends are throwing a series of fundraising events called the Wonder Woman Tour.

This site was set up to keep friends and family updated on Joey's treatment.  It will also provide an avenue for those who wish to donate, and can not make it to one of the fundraising events, to do so.  All money raised will help them out with medical, travel, and rehabilitation expenses.

Thank you for your continued love and support!

April 4, 2013 - Wonder Woman Update

The team of doctors and therapists at the nursing and rehabilitation facility made comments to her immediate family members that Joey is such an inspiration to all of us and continues to work very hard every day.

Joey treatment plan is to work with OT, PT, and ST. She receives a print out each night of her next day treatment plan with each therapist.

Rehabilitation can be a very important part of the treatment plan. The goals of rehabilitation depend on the person's needs and how the tumor has affected daily activities. The health care team makes every effort to help the patient return to normal activities as soon as possible. Several types of therapists can help and here are some examples of what they focus on:

> Occupational therapists. Occupational therapists help patients learn to manage activities of daily living, such as eating, using the toilet, bathing, and dressing.

> Physical therapists. Brain tumors and their treatment may cause paralysis. They may also cause weakness and problems with balance. Physical therapists help patients regain strength and balance.

> Speech therapists. Speech therapists help patients who have trouble speaking, or expressing thoughts.

In addition, Joey will remain on receiving Lovenox injections twice a day in her stomach and closely monitored for her blood clots.
We need more super prayers for our Wonder Woman Joey and her entire family!!!

Joey and Kevin love you all very much.
