In November of 2017, then 10-year-old Joshua Gomez was in a car accident on his way back from Thanksgiving break. Joshua suffered multiple injuries in the accident, and he is now in a wheelchair. Joshua spent one year in Children’s Hospital in Denver recovering from the accident. He was able to move back home to his Colorado Springs residence in November of 2018. The home is a split-level house, and entry to the house was difficult for Joshua because he had to be picked up from his wheelchair and carried into the house.
