Team Joey

The mission of Team JOEY is to further the battle against pediatric cancer through research and to support young cancer patients with small-but-mighty LEGO bricks, in-hospital parties and more!

On November 22, 2010, 7-year-old Joey Keller (pictured above) was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a highly malignant primary brain tumor that originates in the cerebellum. Joey lost his battle two years later. Joey fought with the spirit and attitude that amazed and inspired family, friends and even caregivers. Those who have been affected in one way or another by Joey banded together to form what is now the Heroes Foundation’s Team JOEY program.

For Children Like Piper

Then cancer fighter Piper Lyon (now a cancer survivor!) and her mother Kim Lyon, along with Kelly Canada representing the Heroes Foundation’s Team JOEY program, together show you one way the Heroes Foundation carries out this mission of support.
