Officer's friends hold fundraiser, family speaks

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) --  It has been an unimaginable week and a half for Susan Broadway.

Her son, Montgomery Police Officer Josh Broadway, lies in a hospital bed, recovering slowly, after an accident that could change his life forever.

"The scans and everything [the doctors] keep doing--There's so much damage, they can't tell us," she explained.

As a mother prays for a miracle, friends at Broadway's Montgomery apartment complex work to lessen the financial burden for the young officer and his fiancee, Kelly.

"We're just hoping we can donate enough to him to get him and Kelly through this, where they're not worried about anything," said Glennda Hollon, Broadway's friend.

Aside from working with the Montgomery Police Department, Officer Broadway patrolled the streets of his apartment complex as courtesy officer.

It's only fitting, residents say, they give back in any way they can.

"It's a community effort. Everybody cares. It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from. Everybody cares," Hollon explained.

"We have people praying [for us from] Kenya.  Afghanistan.  Iraq.  Australia," Susan Broadway explained. 

It's a feeling of comfort that helps the officer's family stay positive.

"We are very optimistic.  He is going to walk out of that hospital," Broadway said.

Organizers raised nearly $3,000 on Saturday.  You can still donate to the Josh Broadway Assistance Fund at any local Wachovia Bank.
