Josh Porter...It takes A Small Town
If you have had to deal with this type of circumstance you know it is not only devastating, it quickly drains all assets. We have been blessed to have located a gentleman that has agreed to transport Josh to his doctor's appointment. This has been a big relief because currently he does not have a wheel chair accessible vehicle. Josh has afib as well as high blood pressure and it is so important for him to have these monitored, so getting back and forth to his appointments have been a huge problem.
Josh enjoys company so feel free to visit him. It has been so uplifting for him to hear from so many of his friends and family. Again, he has been blessed! He has a good attitude and is determined to walk again. He is working very hard with Home Health and their physical therapy program and is making progress. We have been told that this is a very crucial time for him and he should use all of his energy toward making a recovery. Being a Marine instilled in him that you can excell and overcome insurrmountable circumstances and he is determined to do just that!
Josh is the kind of guy that has always met challenges with wit and creativity. He has a big heart and even days after his stroke he was in the hospital trying to start a campaign to send shoes and clothes to children in South America. He was forced to realize and committ to putting his health first so he can some day complete his campaign he feels he has been called to do. Several of his friends and family have encouraged us to begin a GoFundMe account to use for expenses that his recovery and future will require. If you would like to contribute to this cause you may do so using this account or individual donations. All gifts/donations will be used solely for Josh's expenses while living with mother. More importantly, please pray for Josh and put him on any prayer list that you are aware of. Thanks in advance for your support and for being part of "A Small Town"!
I'm so proud to get to watch your progression! You've made tremendous progress. Can't wait to see the next huge step Saturday!
