Joey is a single mom and part time student, working overnight at a local casino. She has had a roller coaster of a year with an unfortunate miscarriage and her husband, Jason, discovering he has stage three non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Happier news came in September, when she found out she will again be expecting a baby in May. It’s been a difficult pregnancy with the stress of school, work, and Jason missing work. Joey is hoping  for a little weight lifted off her shoulders for her and Jason to enjoy Christmas.
