Joey Renick, a 22 year old nursing student at the Goldfarb School of Nursing in St. Louis, MO recently relapsed for the 2nd time with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He first began this battle when he was just 3 years old, going through 3 years of chemotherapy treatment which was successful at putting him into remission at age 6. Then 12 years later, tests revealed his cancer had returned. He successfully achieved remission through another fight with cancer after 2 more years of intense treatment and harsh chemotherapy. His hospital and nursing staff inspired him to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at the Goldfarb School of Nursing in St. Louis, MO. He was nearly halfway through the program when he learned he would now have to face it for a 3rd time. Joey's faith and endurance are truly an inspiration to us all and he strides through everything life has thrown his way. Last month, L.I.F.E. paid a visit to Joey in the hospital and was able to assist him with some of his medical costs thanks to the generous donations given to our organization for this exact reason.
