* Josh Beneze is a friend of mine. He just turned 34 years old. Josh was sent to Rhode Island by the Illinois Community College Board for a conference and had a brain aneurysm. He’s now stuck out there in the hospital in intensive care and facing more surgeries and lots of rehabilitation. His mom flew out from Arizona to be with him.
Nobody is really sure what his prognosis is, but the bills are already starting to pile up. His friends are moving his stuff into a storage room, so he won’t have to continue paying rent, but he’ll have to pay his own health insurance premiums soon (up to $900 a month) and he has a car payment to make every month. His mom isn’t exactly flush with cash, so being in Rhode Island is an expense she can ill afford.
To take some of the load off Josh and his family, his friends have set up a GoFundMe page.
