Joey Oberholzer's Recovery Fund

Joey took a serious fall on July 10th, fracturing his spine and neck. He underwent 2 major surgeries, one to fix his fractued neck and another to stabalize and repair his spine. It is remarkable that he survived the fall and subsequent surgeries. He will be transferred to a rehabilitation center to work on the next obsticles, the largest being his attempt to walk again. 

Joey's expenses will be major, including modifying his home for his new mobility needs, as well arranging transportation needs. He is facing months and months of rehabilitation and I'm sure that he is completely unaware of many expenses that he is facing.

I have known Joey for most of his life. He is a really sweet kid (young man!). He loves his family. He is a good friend. Even though he is seriously hurt, he is trying to remain positive and to ease his friends' and family's worries. 

He loves being outside and active and I know he will work his hardest to be able to have an active life again. He works at Loveland Canoe and Kayak as a manager and absolutely loves his job.

Please send prayers and good toughts to him and his family as he begins this long, hard journey toward recovery.
