Joey and family extend our sincere gratitude to those in the medical and rehabilitation field who have helped him along the way; and to our families, friends, the Minisink Valley Community, and the autoracing community near and far for helping to raise awareness of this extremely rare condition.

Handsome Devil BBQ & Ed Randolph is bringing awareness to the Journey for Joey. Five years ago Joey was only the 6th person in the world diagnosed with this unnamed, incurable disease albeit recently a new antibody, referred to as a “bad antibody" was discovered by the Mayo Clinic. Joey was hospitalized in 2009 with this rare disease but with the love, support & prayers of family and friends he has improved beyond expectations and continues to move forward. He faces a battle every day but starts and ends his day counting all his blessings. As we all should! In an effort to support Joey and raise awareness we are asking everyone in all of our communities to join together and visit Joey's website at
