Dear Friends,

I would like to introduce you to The Joy of Life Foundation. The foundation was a compiled notion put together by the Walz Family.

On February 16th, 2015 I lost my very best friend and mother to the nasty disease of Melanoma Skin Cancer. She was not only an amazing mother to my siblings and me but a loving wife as well. During my Mom’s battle with cancer, our family experienced great love and compassion from our small town. In a time of need, our community showed us endless amounts of benevolence and goodwill. Although my mother’s time on this earth came to an end, her spirit of giving and ministering to others lives on through her family and friends. The Joy of Life Foundation has big hopes and dreams to make the road ahead a little easier for all those who cross our path.

Our main goal as a foundation is to give back and show the same benevolence and goodwill to those seeking help or who are experiencing a time of need. We also want to help inform our community of just how serious of a disease Melanoma can be to a person and family.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read this. Our desire
is to help others as well as helping YOU experience all the Joys that life has to offer.

Morgan Walz
