My name is Joe Cusumano, many of you have worked with me or have known me for the last 20 years through Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield of CNY, Rochester, Utica.  Applied Theory Corporation,  Navisite  MONY and now it brings me to a point of where  I am in need of some help for my medical expenses.   I have been fighting end stage liver disease for the last four plus years and over the last year it has turned to primary liver cancer.  I have currently been pushed up the liver transplant waiting list which over time means a wait of approximately three to five more months.  My medical team all agree I can make this wait.   At this stage of my medical condition the medications, frequent hospitalizations and overnights procedures are having a big impact on me and my family financially.  We make frequent trips to Rochester from Syracuse because Strong Memorial Hospital has the best success rates for Liver Transplantation in over half the country and the closest to our home. 

I have two children in college that we assist when we can.  They are the light of our lives and watching them grew into the outstanding citizens has been a pleasure and one I would love to continue to watch.  Both my children have achieved more then I ever expected.  My oldest son has been on the dean's list in college for the last 3.5 years and is an active memer of the accounting honor society.  Our youngest son is on the Admirals list and also an Navy Rotc Scholarship student.

Both my wife and I have worked all our lives and have never asked for anything before from anyone including family.  This is not an easy position to be put in and we are asking for any help you can give any donation would be appreciated ($5, $10, $25, etc.).  We would not be able to thank you enough and even tell you how much it is appreciated. 

Thanks so much!
