|Background for "Joe's Story"
|Joe contracted carbon monoxide poisoning in an industrial
accident. The result was an extreme personality change and loss of memory
for over 2 years. "Joe's Story", is a compelling narration of a life that
had been lost and returned as well as the consequences following the
poisoning. Left on his doorstep in his family's care because he was
exhibiting strange uncontrollable behavior, couldn't drive or even speak
intelligently. With no apparent medical treatment available for his
condition, he and his family were left to deal with the confusing array of
symptoms through their own ingenuity and courage. Nothing less than
frightening at times and downright laughable at others it's the tale of
struggle and victory over enormous odd, refusing to admit defeat.
|Fiercely independent, resourceful, determined and lovable,
they present an unforgettable example of the strength of a truly American
family. The endearing childhood, coming of age and adult stories will tickle
your funny bone, bring tears to your eyes and touch your heart. With the
firm belief that he can overcome any challenge Joe infuses his family with
the same confidence. These beliefs become their strengths when they are most
needed, although shaken at times, their faith in God and each other remains
intact, literally crushing any obstacles on their path.
|This story had to told, from the very beginning on order to
bring to light not only the real dangers we face on a daily basis, but also
how ordinary people can accomplish great things. Strength, Faith and determination
are the mainstay of our society and it shines in "Joe's Story".
