Coucke got shot!

As you may know, Josh and Stevie were caught in a tragic incident on the evening of January 31.  Josh, after allowing law enforcement officers into their home to arrest their roommate in connection with an incident earlier that day, was caught in the cross-fire between the officers and the roommate, and was shot five times.  Thankfully, Josh was very lucky and survived but is dealing with multiple injuries, some of which are likely to result in permanent damage.  Stevie was stuck hiding in the bathroom alone by herself for hours while the police had a stand-off with the roommate, but she finally managed to escape.  

Needless to say, Josh and Stevie are now left dealing with the aftermath of this tragedy, despite being completely innocent bystanders.  They are suffering from severe emotional trauma, and the road to recovery for that and Josh's physical injuries will be long.  

We hope you can offer to support them in this time with whatever you can.  They will both be out of work for some time, and significant hospital and other bills are already starting to pile up.  

Thank you in advance for your generosity and your support!  Josh and Stevie have been overwhelmed by the love and concern of their family and friends, and are enormously appreciative.

We love you, Josh and Stevie!  And we are here for you for whatever you need!!
