A couple weeks ago, I posted on our Facebook page asking for prayers and good will to 4 month old, Josie Bell, who is in intensive care for reasons unknown to doctors.
I was able to get into contact with her father, Marty, and he filled me in as much as he could possible as to what was going on.
“She hasn’t been diagnosed with anything yet. They are struggling to come up with what it is that is making her so sick. She had a lung biopsy…she’s on ECMO (takes blood, oxygenates the blood and puts it back in)…a heart operation but still can’t put a name or cause on what’s made her so sick. All we know is that she has a set of abnormal lungs and that the experts are perplexed.”
We here at the Defenders of the Wall often lead by way of example and since our fight has much to do with integrity and honor, we try to encourage our following and even those opposed to us to be a Patriot of Virtue. One who fights for and defends not just our own goals and ideals, but for all who struggle. From bullying to domestic abuse to cancer warriors and all else in between.
As the co-chairman and Director of Operations at Defenders of the Wall, we are asking Patriots fans to don your favorite Patriots gear, and write down on a piece of paper “We Are Josie Strong”, and take a picture of yourselves holding up the sign, and posting it in comments (below this post on Facebook). We ask that you handwrite these notes and that there’s no added digital texts or frames on the pictures. After we’ve compiled at least 25 pictures from the fans, I will proceed to make a video to dedicate to Josie and her family, to help raise awareness for her situation, in hopes of getting the help she needs.
Remember, Defenders…Rise above yourselves and be a Patriot of Virtue.
Defend Them All!
