Congratulations, Joe Spendolini!

Klamath Falls, Ore. – Social distancing isn’t keeping friends from congratulating a Klamath Falls man on completing his cancer treatments.

Friends of Joe Spendolini decorated his front yard overnight with signs and balloons to show their support.

Spendolini was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer one year ago.

Spendolini says the actions of his friends caught him by surprise.  “I was actually busy on my computer, getting some work done, when I got a text that said, ‘look outside’ – and I did.  It just smacked you upside the head – what a great community we live in.”

Spendolini has remained active with the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce throughout his treatment.

He recently helped to organize and moderate a Congressional candidates debate.
