UPDATE: Upstate NY Firefighter Fighting For His Life
It's a remarkable turnaround.
About two weeks ago, we shared the story of 33 year-old Josh Woodward who works for the Albany International Airport's Fire Department. He is also a volunteer fireman at the North Bethlehem Fire Department and has been fighting for his life.
When I saw an update on his status, I have to be honest, I was afraid to read about it but was so happy to read that Josh is on the road to recovery after battling a deadly infection that doctors at St Peters hospital in Albany only gave him a 5 percent chance of surviving, according to WTEN.
According to doctors, last week Josh made a "remarkable turnaround" and is now slowly recovering from the infection in a standard hospital room as he was moved from the Intensive Care Unit on Tuesday.
Josh's wife Chelsea told WTEN that she has to give most credit to the doctors that helped her husband but also wanted to thank God and the community for supporting Josh and her family throughout his battle.
As we told you two weeks ago, family friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help Josh's family with medical expenses and more. They set a goal of raising $100,000 and as of now they have raised just over $99,000.
If you would like to help them reach their goal, you can make a donation here.
