Josh/Kelly & Kids Car/Medical Fund



Hello,
I am reaching out on behalf of my nephew Josh, his girlfriend Kelly and their family.  Our family has been grieving the loss of Josh's brother Jon who died suddenly in February 2017.  It has been a devastating year and the holidays were extremely difficult especially for Josh who was especially close to his youngest brother.  

Unfortunately life became even more devastating as Josh was in a horrific car accident this past Saturday January 6th.   Josh was 5 minutes from home when he slid on black ice and hit a tree in the early morning.  The car was so badly wrecked that he needed to be pried from the car and rushed to shock trauma.  Please pray for Josh as he has broken both hips (the left one severely), broken ribs, a ruptured spleen, and multiple other contusions, etc.  In the past 72 hours, he has had multiple surgeries.  He is currently in another surgery for internal bleeding and now doctors are removing his spleen.   He is currently in the critical care unit of Shock Trauma.  Josh is not allowed to put any weight on his feet for the next 3 months minimum.  His injuries will require intense rehab for 6-9 months after so he will unlikely be able to return to work for approximately a year.   

Although there will be multiple expenses this year especially because Josh will be out of work,  the dire need is for a car right now.  They had recently purchased the car and the only car the family had.  Right now Kelly is without a car to go to and from the hospital which is approximately 30 minutes away.   She is unable to transport the kids, get to the store and anything a mother needs to do.

Any donation and of course lots of prayers is greatly appreciated at this time.  Thank you so much.
