Joey is forever my dear son and he is the mountain that moves me forward to help the children and families who deal with this horrible disease. During his cancer journey, I learned the valuable lessons of how to be your child’s advocate, connect with researchers and doctors, and promote awareness of childhood cancer. I want to share these experience with other parents through this foundation.

Our goal at the Joey’s Wings is to continue Joey’s fight by raising awareness about childhood cancer, funding research into kidney cancer that affect children and young adults, and to provide support and mentorship program to parents. Before Joey’s diagnosis, I taught at elementary school. I love working with children. I enjoy reading, camping and going to the beach with my husband Luke, son David and our dog Addie.
