As part of the National Walk to End Brain Tumors, Team “Go Joey Go” of Jensen Beach has been formed. All walker runners are welcome to join Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 8:00 AM, on-line group, any where it's virtual!
Team “Go Joey Go” has had firsthand experience with the challenges of a brain tumor when in 2011, 4-year old Joey Swanson of Jensen Beach was diagnosed with pilomyxoid astrocytoma, an extremely rare and lethal form of cancer. He had surgery September 9, 2011 and during a 10-hour surgery, doctors removed part of the tumor on Joey’s brain, however, an inoperable tumor remains on his brainstem. Doctors implanted chemotherapy wafers in Joey’s brain. Joey has had several procedures and after his January, 2014 MRI it seems to be in remission.
Joey and his family live in a Jensen Beach neighborhood with both sets of grandparents, three aunts and two uncles. Their strong family ties are important as the family fights for Joey and all those affected by brain tumors. Everyone is encouraged to join them for this very important cause.
