Type of Cancer: Brain Cancer
While Jose was battling brain cancer, Michael’s Way and the Philadelphia Flyers Wives charity teamed up to renovate his family’s Northeast Philadelphia home.
The family’s unused basement was transformed into a master bedroom suite with access directly outside, making it easier for Jose’s mother to get him to appointments. Volunteers decorated the teenager’s room to make it more fun during his recuperation. Sadly, Jose lost his battle with this devastating disease. He passed away a few months ago, but we are honored to have made the last few months of his short life a little brighter for him and his family.
