Please help us support our Hero, Joshua Nowlan, as he recovers from the injuries he sustained during the Dark Knight premiere shooting.

On Friday, July 20th, 2012, Josh was shot twice while attending the premiere of the Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado. He used his body to shield our newlywed friends, Brandon & Denise Axelrod from harm. Josh is in every sense of the word, a Hero.

While our community mourns the 12 people who tragically lost their lives, we also want to support those who survived, but will have a long road to recovery.

Josh has endured 5 major surgeries to repair the large wounds in his right forearm and left calf. He is still struggling with a great deal of pain, but has been heartened by the outpouring of support.

The Josh I've known for 5+ years is the single most compassionate, selfless, kind, gentle, decent person you could ever meet. He is an open-minded adventurer, whose positive attitude and warm smile are simply, infectious. Josh is the father of 2 boys, ages 7 and 9, who he adores. He is also a Navy veteran, who served 4 years on an aircraft carrier.

Any contribution you can make to offset the large financial burden of his medical bills, and to help improve his quality of life, is deeply appreciated by Josh's family and friends.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Kristen Nicholson, the Nowlan family & friends
