Joey Jude's Walk Again Fund

Joey Jude's Walk Again Fund

Hello Everyone. Share A Life Foundation is proud to present a Go Fund Me Fundraiser for Joey Jude's goal to walking again. He recently entered intense physical therapy at Methodist Rehabilitation Center , where he is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patient.

Joey was involved in a head on collision on highway 6 between Marks and Batesville, Mississippi. He was airlifted to The Med in Memphis, TN where he had three major surgeries and was in a coma for nine months. Although he has been to a couple facilities, he was recently without physical therapy for several months because his insurance would only fund him for therapy for a short period of time. He was recently accepted for a short term (3 weeks) trial of intense physical therapy in Jackson, Mississippi. They will be working with him on taking the proper steps that he will need to become more independent.

Please help us contribute to Joey Jude's Walk Again Fund as he continues his journey to recovery. His insurance will take care of some things but not everything. The funds that are raised will be contributed to necessities such as: accumulated medical bills, medical equipment, personal items, transportation, therapy, follow-up care, and immediate needs related to his well-being.
