Joel Mateo (1968-2007)

Joel passed away last October 2007, just 6 months after being diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer.  Joel was 39 and is survived by his wife, Ever, and two young boys, Jonah and Ayden.  Joel was a hard-working and loving husband, father, son, brother, and friend.  Unfortunately, at the time of his diagnosis, Joel did not have health insurance and therefore faced many challenges with receiving health care.  Fortunately, by the grace of God, he was able to find kindhearted, competent physicians at St. Joseph Hospital, where he fought a hard but brief battle. He was the bread winner of his household.  As you can imagine, Joel's family has been left behind with the difficulties of trying to piece back their lives while facing insurmountable financial burdens.
