This Little Girl Needs Your Help.


Meet Josie Basta. Josie was recently diagnosed with myocarditis and heart failure. Josie is currently on the waiting list for a heart transplant and is alive today thanks to a Berlin Heart Pump. Josie is a member of my family on the in-law side. She’s also one of the sweetest little girls ever to grace the face of the earth. I’m reaching out today to the Jeeping Community to get her story out there and to ask for your help in the fight for her life.

She's been in the CICU since the middle of October and is not likely to be heading back home anytime soon unless she gets a new heart. In order to help defray just a fraction of the mounting medical costs associated with her extended hospital stay in the CICU and pending heart transplant, Josie’s Uncle Mike is distributing the Believe for Josie wristband. The wristband is purple, costs just $5.00, and is available in either child or adult sizes via the website link below. It is engraved with the phrase “Believe for Josie”.

Josie's Uncle Mike is my older brother, as well as the source of my very first Jeep - a 94 YJ with 152K on the odometer when I got it. He's the one who got me into Jeeps so I think the least we could do as a community is help him with his endeavor to help her. Not one penny of the proceeds will go anywhere but to Josie Basta's family.

About Josie

I understand that the holiday season tends to leave us all a bit short on funds, so even if you can’t make a donation, please visit Josie’s website below to leave her a simple and positive message in the Guestbook. These messages help to keep up the spirits of not only Josie herself but also those of her family during this impossibly difficult time. To learn more about Josie Basta and the fight for her young life, you may visit her website here: CaringBridge / josiebasta / Welcome


For those who can afford to donate to Josie’s cause or stop by to leave well wishes; from the bottom of our hearts, the Basta and Devenney Families thank you.

If you are not already, please be the one to give, so that others might live. Become an organ donor today.

There will be some fundraising events coming up in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.
