Dream Foundation Grants Joplin Man’s Dying Wish

JOPLIN, MO.— At the age of 47, Joplin native John Vincent never expected to be faced with death. The news came the day after Thanksgiving.

“He was starting to have loss of balance. We found out because he was having headaches and he had that for a week, and then on Friday he started vomiting and that’s when we took him in. We thought it was something minor,” said Heather Vincent, John’s wife.

John and his wife, Heather, didn’t expect to hear the worst news of their life. John had a grade four terminal brain tumor, that managed to develop in just three months.
