Help Firefighter Joseph “Joey” Houlihan Recovery

$10,830 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 159 people in 29 days
On Friday May 24th 2019 while on his way home, Joseph was involved in a terrible vehicle
accident. Due to the seriousness of the injuries he sustained to his Leg and Arm, Joseph is looking at a long road to recovery and returning to work. Joseph and Laura have two beautiful children.
Joseph is a Firefighter and has helped save numerous people who have sustained similar injuries, so it is only right that we help him in his time of need! He would do ANYTHING for ANYONE, so it only seems fitting that we raise money to provide for his medical bills as he has to undergo multiple surgeries to repair the damage that has occurred.
We are looking for any type of support to help Joseph and his family during this heartbreaking time since he will be taking time off work and paying for extra Hospital expenses. Joseph worked while on his time off from the Fire Station doing construction work to allow his family to stay at home.  
Joseph's recovery will limit his ability to return to his normal off duty schedule. As a new firefighter and sole income, a second job is where he makes a significant amount of his income. His income will be significantly affected by this incident and any support will help. We are grateful for all the love and well wishes being sent this way.

Update on Joey:
Last weeks surgery went well, and if all goes well should be getting out of the hospital next week and into a rehabilitation center. Pain levels are still high but manageable, hopefully that will begin to go down soon.

Joey is doing as good as can be expected but still dealing with a lot of pain. As far as we know he has one last surgery scheduled for the middle of this week. If all goes well he will need another week or two in the hospital before hopefully being transferred to a rehabilitation center. His spirits are high and he is ready to tackle the upcoming physical therapy.
Please keep his family in your prayers during these tough times.
