"Rally for Joe Bud!"

Good afternoon everyone. My name is Patty Gemberling and my brother Joe Budnovitch was recently injured in a motorcycle accident. He sustained a back injury that was severe enough to warrant rods, pins and screws literally to piece his spine back together.

Just being released from the hospital, Joe and his family have been overwhelmed with extensive medical bills. 

Joe is walking and is on a pathway to recovery,  but the road will be long,  painful, and with lost wages, expensive.  I am reaching out to all of my friends, family and the community in the hope we can come together to support Joe with this significant financial burden.

Please give what you can.  Joe is a loving husband, father, son in law, brother, uncle and friend! I am truly blessed to have him as a brother! He is one of those compassionate individuals that wouldn't hesitate to give if the situation was reversed. 

We are so truly greatful that Joe is making progress, and focused on his future, with just getting back to his life and family. "I'm  just taking it day by day, one step at a time."

To help me get the word out, please share his story to your Facebook timeline. Sharing is almost as helpful as donating.

I thank you all for your support for Joe and please keep him in your prayers for his physical, mental and spiritual well being!
