Family raising money to help cover treatments for toddler who nearly drowned

So, the couple has begun to raise money.

“We were told that he probably would not survive. He fought and has pulled through,” the family wrote on a GoFundMe account to raise the money for the treatment. “This (medical treatment) is our only hope for Josiah to regain as much of a normal life as possible.”

The family said Josiah would have to be in the HBOT chamber approximately one hour a day and would need to be in New Orleans for approximately 8 to 10 weeks. For 40 HBOT treatments it is $9,000 and Juan said the doctors have told them their son will need two treatments, which would total $18,000. So far, they have been able to raise about $6,500.

“I ask everyone to please help my son. Our insurance will not cover any of this treatment. We are in desperate need of help,” the GoFundMe page said.
