Mother and son share inspiration for scared families

Email

When Joel Soukup and his family were battling bone cancer, there was no book to tell them what to expect or what to do.

Now, thanks to Joel and his mother, Kathy, that is no longer true.

Joel fought osteosarcoma for the first time when he was attending Pine River-Backus High School at age 16. Though it cost him a leg, he won the battle. When the cancer came back at age 20, Joel came out on top yet again.
