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".
