For the family of Joey Cunningham, golfers coming together to raise money for his medical expenses is a great and generous gesture.
“It’s about the love and support we get,” says Vern Cunningham, the father. “It keeps motivated, it keeps us strong. We need that support.” Joey Cunningham has been in a coma for 12 years, and his family looks after him at their home in High Prairie.
