Joshua Sperry Medical Bills

I am trying to raise money for a friend of mine, Janelle, that is up to her ears in mounting medical bills and lots of stress. Her son Josh was born with a very rare disease requiring constant care and attention, day and night. Josh has numerous doctors appointments (some hours away) and physical therapy sessions all throughout the week. Throughout the day, Josh is administered several doses of medication, has tubes in his body that must be constantly tinkered with, changed, cleaned, etc - even every few hours throughout the night.  On top of all this, Janelle has had to return to work full time to support her family (she has two other kids). Lately she has been paying an in-home nurse out of pocket to come over during the day while she has to work. Janelle is constantly filling out form after form of paperwork to make sure her son gets the treatment he needs just to live. 

She has one of the toughest lives of any one I have ever met, her day to day life is anything but easy; the financial burden has to add to all of the stresses she is already shouldering. For her and her family, life right now is HARD! She does not know I am doing this and I would like to keep it that way for the time being. Most of us have been blessed beyond measure, and I would like for us all to pool our resources together and in turn, be a small blessing to her. 

I have also never created a go-fund me page, but I am hoping and praying everyone that sees this will find it in their heart to give generously, if they can. Please feel free to privately send this to anyone you think would be willing to help. I would also ask for your prayers; pray for God to keep giving Janelle strength and encouragement; pray for wisdom for Josh's doctors, pray that Josh gets the help and professional care that he needs and pray that he doesn't feel pain, pray for healing, progress in his condition, milestones reached, physical obstacles overcome and pray that we can raise enough money to really help! Thank you all in advance, God Bless!
