Joshua's Covid-19 Fund

Joshua is sick with Covid-19 and on a ventilator since Dec 5th 2020. He is 17 years old and fighting for his life. Our entire family of 4 has it and in quarantine.  A friend suggested I start a GoFundMe page since we are having such a difficult time . Josh has been sick since 12-3, in the ER twice and then finally admitted on 12-5 to Children's Hospital in Knoxville, TN. 

2020 has not been very nice to us. We lost my mom this year and 2 of our pets. Joshua had to re-learn going to school digitally and has struggled with it from day one. Josh is a typical teenage boy that loves video games, movies and Legos.  However Josh was born with a rare condition called "Arthrogryposis", where his joints are fused and his muscles are weak. With this condition, Josh is not very mobile and it's caused him to gain a lot of weight over the years. In turn, this has caused a lot of problems with this Covid-19 and keeping his mom worried to death! 

The funds will be used to keep this family going while dealing with a crisis. Josh's dad owns and runs his own electrical business but has been sick and quarantined. Mom here, is a stay at home mom since Josh was born. I sell on Etsy & Ebay when I can, but right now I'm not able to.  So worried about my kids and husband, any help will be grateful. We welcome prayers and thank you for reading our story.
