John’s Story

Site created on July 7, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
John was in a car accident and is currently at Kindred Hospital in Havertown.  Please pray for him as he remains unconscious since the accident.  Family will try to keep this page updated.  
John is starting to breath on his own and is slowly getting off the ventilator.  He has a broken arm and ankle.  At times he will open his left eye.  He does have a feeding tube.
NOTE:. You do not have to donate to share your thoughts.  Just keep scrolling down past the donation section...
My plan is to update again Mon after the Dr. Visits John.  Thank you everyone.

Journal entry by tom westwood

John is starting to get settled in at his new home in Lancaster PA. He keeps busy from 8:00 to 4:00 Mon through Friday going to some neat classes and all different kinds of therapy. John lives in an apartment with 4 other guys. On the weekends, his housemates often go away and John is alone. Mom and Dad try to go out when they can, but now need some help. If anyone would want to make a short trip to Lancaster on a Saturday or Sunday, John really enjoys visitors and likes to go out for walks. Or you can even go out shopping in the Outlets or just to a restaurant. When John's mind is occupied he does pretty good.
John's address is
649 Patriot Drive
Lancaster, PA 17601
You can come out any weekend. You can call his apartment and let staff know you are coming so they can be sure he will be home.  The house number is 717-397-9070. John's cell number is 717-803-1796. The best time to reach him is on the weekends or after 5:00 during the week.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me through this site or my email is Thanks to all.
