This gofundme account is created for Josh Kittle and his family. Josh has cystic fibrosis and received a double lung transplant four years ago. About one week ago Josh's body began rejecting his new lungs. He is currently in the ICU at the University of Michigan Hospital fighting for his life. He is in a stable condition but still has a very long recovery ahead. This account was created to help Josh and his family with the many medical fees and related expenses that are building up. All donations go directly to Josh Kittle and his family.

Josh Kittle passed away last night (8-13-2015) after his long fight with cystic fibrosis and lung rejection. This gofundme account will be used for medical bills, funeral costs and also to help out his family financially as they have taken many weeks off of work.

In the past week Josh has been in an induced coma and on a ventilator. He has been given plasmapheresis treatments along with steroids to help regain his health. He currently has made small improvements but still has a long way to go. The following is an update from Josh's father Jimmy Kittle:

"Josh was taken off the meds that kept him Paralyzed. He is beginning to breathe with assistance from the ventilator. The had to restrain his arms ( imagine that. Lol ). He's still critical. But making small steps forward. No doubt all the prayers are continuing to work. He is still sedated and will be for a while yet. His eyes were open about half way for a couple minutes. Still a long road, but he's not alone for sure."

We thank everyone for the prayers and donations so far. This fundraiser is working out amazing and we could not be happier. It is crazy that in just five hours we have reached over $1000. It really is wonderful that we have such amazing family, friends and community that help each other out in times of need.

We met Josh at the Great Strides walk in Muskegon after the transplant. He inspired everyone there. When I mention Josh to our family at the Hillbilly River Poker Run, they quickly remembered him. He made a fast impression on all of us for his spirit. We will pass on his story as we continue the Hillbilly River Poker Run and Hog Bash.
