Patrick is still living and working in Los Angeles. He is employed as a Post Production Coordinator, currently working on: Bar Rescue on Paramount Network, Guardians of the Glades on the Discovery Channel Tuesday nights, and on the Kitten Bowl that will air on the Hallmark Channel during SuperBowl LIV. He works long hours but loves the challenge and the fast pace of television production.

Patrick was filmed for two documentaries, one titled Any One of Us on HBO and another that is on Amazon Prime titled Take a Look at this Heart.

We have continued to fundraise via social media for medical expenses that are not covered by insurance. A big financial need has come up. Patrick’s wheelchair van has broken and is beyond economical repair. He located a low-mileage 2017 Chrysler van that has most of the modifications he needs already completed; however, the cost is still very high. We are fundraising seeking help towards the van so that Patrick’s auto loan payments aren’t too high.

Thank you again to all of you who have shared his story and supported us over the years!!! We truly love and appreciate you all!
