Please help one of our own - Joe & Dale Rinehart

I'm sure by now many of you have heard of, or had the pleasure of personally meeting Joe Rinehart, one of our own community's most selfless and dedicated individuals. And by now you may have heard about his wife Dale's recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I'm very fortunate to know Joe and have met his wife Dale at past conferences and I have to say they are both incredible people. Also, like many of you, I have benefited from his work with Model-Glue and his knowledge which he is always willing to share either via his always great presentations at conferences or on an individual basis. Regardless of the circumstances, Joe is always there willing to help or contribute with enthusiasm.

It's well known that Multiple Sclerosis treatment costs are very expensive. Regardless if the patient has adequate medical insurance coverage they still have many out-of-pocket expenses. This is where you, the ColdFusion community comes in. We are asking everyone who can, to please visit and help us say thanks to all his efforts while supporting them.

Thank you.
