For a bright new future for Joe

Hi there, I am starting a fundraiser for Joe Sotello. He is a father to a wonderful caring hardworking man and to a strong loving young woman. He's been through it all. He doesn't have much but he gives as much as he can. He comes with Christmas gifts for everyone even though he might not have money for Christmas, he tries and he gives. He may not be a perfect person but who is... He is a good person, and he tries. In October 2020 he was in devastating fire. He was sleeping at a motel when he was caught in a raging fire. He was sent to the ER with 3rd degree burns. He was sent to the burn unit, with severe burns that burn away his muscles and tissues down to his bone. His body was not strong enough to heal the burns wound and his lower legs were infected. The doctor needed to amputate his legs before the infection moves up to his body. We his family are trying to raise money for him and to help him with his hospital bills and recovery. We want him to live a happy full life even as an amputee. His will be a hard journey for him but he deserve a full chance. He is still in recovery and incubated...
