Help Joe Mazzara
Joe has a passion for life and genuine love for people that can only be described as infectious. There is nobody else like him.
Right now Joe is lying in an ICU. While riding his motorcycle, he crashed into an onramp, falling 35 feet onto a small patch of grass.
Joe is a fighter, and while the road to recovery will be long, we are confident he will get to the finish line.
However, without medical insurance, that road is going to be expensive. At this time his doctors are anticipating that he will be in the ICU for at least a week, his lungs are collapsed and his body is bleeding. He will need multiple surgeries for his many broken bones, and then months of physical therapy.
We are raising money to help him through this time.
Can you help him?
Your support will allow him to focus on getting well. Any amount is appreciated as are your prayers and support.
When we know more, we will post other ways to help. But until that time: Help Joe by donating now.
Thank you again for all your support and love.

Joe's birthday is in two days. Our boy will be 31, and we are all hoping to celebrate with him soon. But right now he is still fighting in the ICU.
He has a serious infection that's keeping his lungs from recovering. While we are so thankful he is fighting the infection, we need those lungs to start getting better.
Christopher shared this photo on Facebook and I wanted to share it here too.
It was a miracle he survived the crash, but we need a second miracle now. The doctors need to find the source of the infection and his lungs need to heal.
We continue to be so thankful and appreciative to the hospital staff for everything they are doing and thank you for your continued support.
Can you keep sharing this?
I know it's a lot to ask, but on February 27th, his birthday, can you share as a gift to him?
We don't want anyone to forget about him.
WHILE HE KEEPS FIGHTING -- WE'LL KEEP FIGHTING!
Thank you SO SO much for everything you are doing and have done. Let's keep going until he wakes up!
Tomorrow will be two weeks since Joe's accident. He is still in the ICU and is still in critical condition. We were hoping that he would be recovering faster but the trauma doctors have told us that this type of slow progression is normal.
The thing that really needs immediate healing is his lungs. The doctors are also trying to figure out why he's been running a fever for so long. They are telling us it could be another four weeks before he can breathe fully. It's disappointing, but we are thankful that the doctors are still optimistic.
All we can really do is keep praying and thinking about him.
I also want to say THANK YOU again for the donations. We are so close to $35,000 which is SO amazing.
Two weeks on and we are still blown away by your support. Thank you.
