Thank you for taking time to visit our website. After my son Joseph passed away in August 2007, my family and I made it our mission to carry on his name and memory by starting the Joseph Thomas Foundation to help other medically fragile children. I hope that you will help us by sharing this website and Joseph’s story with others who either need help or wish to help.
John Thomas, President/CEO
