As you all know, Joe was in an accident on Sunday, April 15th, injuring himself severely. Joe has multiple injuries: head trauma, broken tail bone, broken ribs, two broken arms (requiring surgery), punctured lungs, every bone in his face has been broken (requiring reconstructive surgery), broken chest bone, broken jaw in three places (requiring surgery), puncture wound, and internal bleeding due to torn blood lines on intestines. To date Joe has had multiple surgeries to repair his injuries, a trach has been put in place to help with breathing, reconstruction of his face, wiring of his jaw, multiple blood transfusions, a dissected carotid artery which caused a stroke after the accident, and he is also being treated for aspiration pneumonia.
A benefit will take place in Joe's honor to help raise money for any medical expenses which will incur in the near future.
