THIS BLUE LIFE MATTERS(Josh Vadell)
At approximately 2:30 AM on Saturday September 3rd,Three thugs were approached by an Atlantic City police officer.Unprovoked one of these criminals decided to shoot this unsuspecting officer in the head. He is in critical condition and fighting for his life. He is a tough guy and the road to recovery will be long and hard for him and his family. I originally called on the local business community to raise funds amongst ourselves,to help out this officer and wife and young family and then I decided to hopefully go viral with it and raise as much as possible. Atlantic City is a city that media loves to bash...but undersatnd this,we love our police department and our community. we are under siege from so many different factors,but we won't tolerate someone hurting one of our officers. He is a police officer,husband,father and a friend.He is what being a "cop" means!! Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can. I personally am donating $1000 and hopefully more. There are so many great causes out there and we are inundated daily with causes we should all support but none as important is this one is right now. We need to send this message locally,nationally and globally for us to continue as a society,we must hold our police to a higher regard and support them in times of need. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES!!!
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

Everyone is pulling for Josh. Our officers are just amazing and I don't think the general public has any idea of what the officers go through on a daily basis. We will continue our prayers until we get the all clear from the family. Please stay strong, you can do this. Prayers of strength for his family as well.
I'm. Let elated of his progress! I'm terribly I'm sorry I could not donate. I'm currently off duty due to sustaining a very serious Traumatic Brain Injury with resulted in surgery. Work Comp is not in favor of caring for officers, rather it protects the epmloyers. If I could have, I'd have donated the amount reququested! But I know my blue blood brother is card for, as evident by the tremendous support. Thank you and thank him for doing what we have had a calling to do, regardless of our own personal safety. I know this was a cowardly acts, but it doesn't change his valor, honor, or bravery for putting on a badge every day. Get well brother. You are definitely missed and I feel you'll make a full recovery. If I can, in the future, be of service, I'm here.
Coby Frier as Joshlee Vadell's sister I want to thank you and all who have shown all the love and support to him and the family. He is a fighter and I see how much he has come thus far. It will be a long recovery but all of your prayers are greatly appreciated. To let everyone know that this was serious and even doctors are amazed. God Bless you All.
I completely understand raising the limit. I went through the same situation with no insurance and forced to apply for Obama care and didn't qualify as their plans were too expensive. They referred me to the state Medicaid,but was turned down for not being governmentally defined as disabled. I've been out for 15 months and have to pay cash for my non work comp medication for PTSD. I've had to cash in all retirement and investment funds to fight eviction 3 times thus far. I'm not posting to make this about me, but to shed light on a serious gap in a system that is supposed to be a safety net for employees. This money IS needed to keep him and his family afloat. He's been through a lot and the added stress of finances will dramatically slow his recovery. I highly recommend getting an attorney involved to and Le work comp. this helps tremendously and will ensure his care is covered and he doesn't have to deal with them. These usually end in a lawsuits cause there is generally a degree of disability, even if the disability goes away later. Work comp is responsible to cover this, but is impossible without a lawyer. Get well brother.
Cody your doing a noble think. Thank for doing it. Coming from a family with 4 generations of Police officers it warms my heart to see how th community is coming together. Josh you have a lot of people praying for you get better so that new baby that is coming get to know their father. Laura you have a lot of Blue family praying for you!

Josh, we are praying for you !! Can't wait to see you up and around and drinking some good red wine on my porch !! Keep on fighting ❤️
Good Morning Coby! My name is Rachel Marie from Cat Country 107.3 here in AC, and we would really like to help spread the word about this cause! I do a segment called "Daily Dose of Good" which shines light onto our community for those in need and I think this is a great initiative that needs to be shared! If you could message me so we could chat a little and get more info, that would be great!
I heard briefly on the radio the other day that there will be a fundraiser at A.C. high school, I believe on Nov.12th. Does anyone have the specifics on this event? If so please leave the info. on my facebook page. Thank you.
Sending prayers .
