Ross Joiner Loses Battle

Heartbreaking news from Duke Medical Center where two Lubbock boys went looking for a miracle.

There have been numerous fundraisers these last few months to rally behind Joe and Janet Joiner whose two boys were diagnosed with the same fatal illness. The only option for the Joiners was to take their boys to Duke Medical Center for bone marrow transplants.

Trevor, the older child, was forced to undergo a second transplant after the first was unsuccessful. Trevor is recovering, but his two year-old brother, Ross, has had an even more difficult time.

Ross died Saturday of complications from his first transplant. NewsChannel 11 will have more later in the week as funeral arrangements are decided.
