Journey4Josie is part of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish healthcare assistance program. Josie Gaffney is a 16-year-old parishioner who has been fighting a severe case of Lyme disease and co-infections for 5 years.

Here's a link to a recent story about Josie on abc27, WHTM, in Harrisburg:

The Journey4Josie foundation helps to raise funds for research and treatment of Lyme disease, as well as to help Josie's family with thousands of dollars in uncovered medical expenses each month. Thanks to the many who joined in the 5K run/walk yesterday. Next project? to remodel the family's ranch home to make it accessible for Josie's motorized wheelchair. We need a few volunteers to help move furniture of the house, as well as to get the house ready for Habitat for Humanity to do the remodeling. Any volunteers? Call the parish Volunteer Coordinator at (717) 697-6929. Our healthcare assistance program helps parishioners who are facing catastrophic illnesses with volunteer advocacy, assistance with household tasks, meals, shopping, and financial assistance for uncovered medical bills. Volunteers and tax-deductible donations are always welcome.
