ABOUT JOSEPH's JOURNEY
We are raising money and have created a community to support Joseph with his treatment and recovery.
In May 2020, Joseph was due to attend Buckingham Palace to receive his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Until 1st March 2020 Joe's life was full of Club Hockey, County Cricket, A Level's, Surfing, Skiing. You name it he did it, with passion, energy, and a cheeky grin.
On 1st March 2020, 18 years of energy and laughter came to an abrupt standstill when Joe was hit by a car and received a severe traumatic brain injury.
This brought us together as a group of family, friends and supporters, with the shared aim of trying to make a difference to Joseph's future journey.

He has been following commands, for example, touching his left and his right ear when asked to do so, he is able to move both of his legs, he is answering yes and no through blinking and the most amazing step is that he has shown us his incredible sense of humour. His smiles this week have brought us all to tears!
We are also very excited to report that Joseph has started to emerge slowly from his stage two coma, and is beginning to respond to simple commands and stimulation.
Thank you so much, each and every one of you for your amazing support over the last few months. All of the messages and clips that people have sent in have been an incredible support for Sharon and Joe and in addition, through everyone’s generosity and time, we have raised an astonishing
Joe is living in Adderley Green Care Home and due to the restrictions, he is still unable to receive any visitors. This has now been the situation for months, but Sharon and family continue to FaceTime daily to chat to Joe.
We hope that as soon COVID allows, extra therapy can resume and that these little steps will lead to bigger steps over the coming months.
