Joe was on track to hike Mt. Whitney when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer four years ago. His treatment was successful but the physical and mental toll made him lose sight of his healthy habits. Then he lost his job when his company underwent a workforce reduction. Joe says, “There are always choices when unfortunate things happen, you can sit around and feel sorry for yourself or you can take positive action.” Joe took positive action! He joined the Wellness Center in April 2017 determined to get physically and mentally fit. Joe is a vocal and emotional leader and he is thrilled to be part of the Lucky 13!
