"Tell everybody ah say thanks... ah glad for the support!" Tommy Joseph.
Tommy has been discharged from the hospital and is at home. Our goal is to get him walking again at 100%. Vidya, a family friend, will provide free physiotherapy.
The next step is for his family to set up a comfortable living space for him, which is anticipated to cost approximately $35,000. Building a wheelchair-accessible room is part of this process. The list also includes a walker and a reclining bed, which he is not interested in: "Who's going to stay in bed? I look sick!" Lol! George has already arranged a wheelchair for him.
Your generosity thus far has been greatly appreciated by the family.
On August 31st, the page will be closed. Those of you who wish to contribute have only a few more days to do so on this platform. After today, you will still be able to make a direct deposit to Tommy's account through Republic Bank

In shock, his wife, Judy cried, “How could this have all happened in such a short space of time?”
In the month following the pandemic, Tommy had been in and out of hospitals, visiting private doctors and comparing diagnoses. It had become a routine for the family - "It's just a drain and he'll be out again."
The family was informed of the most alarming news of his condition on Wednesday, August 10th, 2022; however, in the absence of appropriate tests, more questions were raised than answers.
With the assistance of a close friend, tests were conducted and later confirmed that Tommy had suffered a blood clot-related stroke. The CT scan also revealed another issue, which required emergency surgery to treat a blood infection.
People who know Tommy will attest that he is a very private individual. I was heartbroken after visiting him on Wednesday. For the first time, he said, "I am not doing well, Nats." There was no doubt in my mind that he needed additional assistance. He was unable to work for more than two years as a result of the pandemic and stringent workplace policies.
I created this Go Fund Me page to help my friend, a legend, Tommy Joseph, have a chance at a better recovery. Contributions will go directly to his family to help cover expenses.
