This is not how I wanted to find out. Joe is a good friend. Fingers crossed for him, will definitely be donating when I get home.  :'(

Never have met him, but have heard so many great things about Joe. Hoping the best for him and his family.

Sending good vibes to Joe and his family, hoping everyone can help out if possible as I'm sure the bill will be astronomical.  It sounds cliche but he truly is one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.

Donated a little. I was always appreciative of his photos and articles. He called skateboarders the greatest people in the world in one Thrasher article, and even though that's a simple statement that some could argue against, it was heartwarming to me when I was a kid.

Woke up to this update. Awful.


Here is a note from Jess:

Dear friends -

Thank you for the overwhelming show of support for my husband Joe and our family. It’s difficult to express how much love we feel without choking up. We are incredibly grateful to the skateboarding and teamster community for spreading the word about Joe and sending messages of love, healing and support as well as donations.

As you can imagine we are in a state of shock but are doing our best to maintain. We are lucky to be surrounded by close family who have flown out to be with us. Joe’s parents and mine are here helping us cope and communicate with Joe’s doctors. Ansel and Taliesin are having a tough time without daddy but are hanging in.

It was important to Joe to get a handle on the situation before sharing more detail but it seems time. Joe was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer two weeks ago. He was prescribed a course of chemo to start at home. It was this medication that Joe reacted to resulting in a heart attack. Joe is currently in a medically induced coma. Doctors are monitoring him and trying to assess his situation. They're hoping to ween him off of sedation but there’s a lot that we won't know until more testing can be done.

Thank you again for your love and support, please keep sending positive thoughts our way. We’ll continue to update as we know more.

Love,

Jessica

Ugh....that is so terrible to read. Just cause I sort of went through that with my dad this past month. Hopefully it is a misdiagnosis for the cancer. Medical industry can be really off at times and I hope that is the case. 

Also I hope he has some sort of medical coverage cause if not, this GoFundMe is going to really pay a lot.

I don’t think there’s a single skater out there that hasn’t seen a Hammeke picture. Fuck cancer.
