Air Force Veteran's Son Publishes Children's Book After Enduring Traumatic Brain Injury in a Hit-and-Run
By: Shift Magazine
The massive Traumatic Brain Injury affected every area of his life; cognitive, emotional, physical. He has been through two thousand appointments in the sixteen years since the injury. His cognitive abilities have suffered the most severe part of the injury.
His father, Mark Goblowsky was an Air Force veteran and took it upon himself to make sure that Josh's life was as normal as possible. Now in his 20s, Josh still has the emotional maturity of a 10-year-old but an indomitable spirit. He wanted to write a book so that other children and young adults with disabilities could relate to his situation.
They brought in illustrator Justin William Gordon for the drawings. Josh created a list of chapter ideas and story content with Jennifer Perea who helped get his thoughts down on paper. Mark handled the publishing duties.
Joshua is donating 100% of the proceeds to the Sunshine Foundation which helps chronically ill children fulfill their dreams.
As of 2022 the market size of the Children's Book Publishing industry is $2.6 billion, an increase of 2.22% from 2021. (IBIS world website, 2022)
"I'm really proud of Josh for doing this, it's a great way for him to connect with other young people around the world and share his story which in many ways are like Josh's story." – Mark Goblowsky
