May 2020, Joseph was due to attend Buckingham Palace to receive his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Until 1st March 2020, Joe’s life was was full of sport - hockey, cricket, surfing, skiing and a passion for music, all whilst completing his final year of his A-levels. He had ambition and passion, you name it he did it with huge energy and a cheeky grin.
On March 1st, 18 years of energy and laughter came to an abrupt standstill when Joe was tragically hit by a car and received a severe traumatic brain injury, from which he still hasn’t woken up. He has successfully fought off Covid 19 and is responding to basic stimulus and is being treated at Leicester General Hospital, but remains in a coma.
Part of the support we want to give Joe and Sharon is to raise funds for the path ahead. It’s unclear what the long term impact on Joseph will be, but we do know that the journey will be long and costly. We will update the website with Joe’s progress and specific needs, equipment and rehabilitation treatment as we go along. There are many ways in which you are able to get involved to help Joe, please follow us on www.josephsjourney.co.uk for all our news and activities planned.
We would be delighted if you would be able to get involved and support Joe in his journey.
