Josh Ciocco Medical Expense Campaig

This fund is for our good friend Josh Ciocco. Josh suffered and unusual injury post workout this past Thursday evening. He became aware that he could not feel or move his leg and went immediately to the hospital.  Doctors diagnosed Josh with something called compartmental syndrome. He had damaged a muscle in his leg so severely portions of the muscle had died and the blood flow to his entire leg had been compromised. He also had a lot of toxins in his blood stream because of the necrosed tissue. Unfortunatley, Josh's kidneys have been unable to filter the toxins and he has had at least two round sof dialysis as of Saturday. Josh has also had two surgery's to deal with the removal of dead muscle tissue. He is not comfortable and is still unable to use his leg as of this post. He is currently in the ICU at Rhode Island Hospital. Although Josh does have health insurance through his coaching job at Brown University, he has a long hospital stay and a long recovery ahead of him. Not all of his expenses will be covered. It has only been two days and there is not a lot more information about Josh's prognosis other than he will be able to keep his leg.  Doctors are currently concerned aboiut his kidneys as well. This go fund me campaign is an effort for all of us to Josh how much we care. He would never ask for anything, much less admit he doesn't feel well. He probably won't like this, but I feel sure he will be able to use this money to pay hospital bills and any other expenses he may incur while recovering. Thank you for your help.
