Wonder Woman Joey


My wife, Joann “Joey” Outten was diagnosed with brain cancer in the spring of 2004. The cancer was in remission for seven years, but became active again in 2011. Although Joey was a brave and determined warrior, the cancer took her life in the fall of 2013 – the day after our third year wedding anniversary.

This past, September 2015, marked the two-year anniversary that my beloved wife, and best friend Joey passed away after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Joey’s passing will always be an incredible source of sadness to everyone who knew her. I am so appreciative of the support of the Super Friends over the past few years.

My promise to Joey: I would continue to dedicate my life to helping others who are enduring or destined to endure the same battle that she suffered through. I knew at that time when I made that promise to her that I needed to make something good come out of everything that had happened.

I am honored to serve in the capacity of Co-Chairman for the National Brain Tumor Society, Delaware Brain Tumor Walk on April 23, 2016. In this role, and also on a personal level, my commitment toward making this a community event distinguishes the walk from any other.

Our vision is to draw children, parents, grandparents, and family friends from all over the State! The event is to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors.

Every Story Is Unique and Every Life Precious. Thank you for joining us in the fight against brain tumors!

Love, Peace, and Blessings to you and yours.
