  1. Thank you for this update. As a BU parent, we know this could have been out own son or daughter. I am so glad to hear how well Josh is doing and also happy that he is back at BU and resuming his education.

  2. So happy to hear Josh is doing well! As a BU parent who’s daughter was in her freshman year last January, I have wondered how you and your family were doing after the fire. Your story is inspirational and I wish you all the best in fulfilling your dreams!

  3. I remember seeing the fire and hearing about Josh on the news. I was wondering how he was doing. What great news to hear that he’s returning to his studies at BU! Best of luck to you, Josh.

  4. Thank you for sharing this story…Josh and his family are heroes for taking on this challenge with gusto and perseverance. As an occupational therapist, I have worked with many people who have sustained brain injuries. The road to recovery can be a long one, but Josh sounds like he is doing so well! Kudos to him for thinking of encouraging others who have sustained TBI’s on their healing journey!
