On Christmas day, Joey was en route to his grandparents, and crashed into a tree. Upon impact, his car caught fire. Joey sustained severe injuries from the glass and shrapnel. Shards of glass entered his chest and stomach- his aorta was split, he has a hole in his heart. He also suffered injuries to his liver and stomach.


Joey was admitted to the ICU, where he was put into a medically induced coma. Earlier during the day, the doctors announced that he had a 50/50 chance of survival; later that night, they were much more confident. Joey will remain in a coma for at least a week, but up to a month!

Joey will pull through because he is a fighter, but with this hole in his heart, he will also have a huge hole in his pockets. His dad stated that Joey will likely have to declare bankruptcy with all of the bills from this horrible accident.

Let's help him survive financially, and wake up to a world of good news from his friends, family and fellow Chivers. We know the goal is lofty but any amount will help.

Joey lives in Louisville KY

Thank you for your love and support!

I would just like to say thank you to everyone for their love and support of Joey and his family. All of those involved with this effort have had one goal in mind from the beginning, to help Joey. With the unfortunate passing of Joey, we turned our efforts to supporting his family in whatever means possible, and that continues to be our goal. Our motivations and actions have been 100% genuinely authentic and it is unfortunate that some question our motives. We all loved Joey and greatly miss him everyday.

Joey, you will be greatly missed. I know your smile will be radiating down on us from heaven. Wrap your arms around your family and friends and let them know that they will be ok; that you are in a better place and no longer in pain. God took you way too early and young, but I heard he only takes the best.
