His time with the Council has been extremely rewarding, educational and a lot of fun. Joe has always had high appreciation for All Children's Hospital, ever since his niece was born in 1996. She has Down Syndrome, has experienced multiple heart surgeries, and was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 4. Needless to say, she spent many days and weeks at All Children's, and his entire family is forever grateful for the world class treatment that she received.
