Support Josh's Family!

On November 14th, Josh suffered a cardiac arrest while in hospital. He was in cardiac arrest for 7 minutes. He has been in a medically induced coma for the past 7 days. For those that don’t know Josh, he has suffered and struggled with multiple health problems for most of his life. He has cerebral palsy and he has been confined to a wheelchair. Over the past 8 years, he has been receiving dialysis, as he suffered from kidney failure. He also dealt with an extreme case of scoliosis. Josh is the light of his family’s life and their entire world.  His mom, Christine and sister, Casey are devastated beyond belief and have been told that the prognosis is not positive for Josh to come out of the coma. He is declining daily and being kept alive by many machines. This Gofundme would help to alleviate any financial pressure with being off work and funeral expenses for the family as they navigate the traumatizing and devastating time. Josh is the most charismatic, funny, smart and well loved guy. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to meet him, you’ve felt his incredible presence. The family thanks you in advance for any donations.
