John Thomas Torrisi, is a beloved third grade student at Woodland Elementary School in Warren, NJ. On the evening of February 12th, JT was taken to Overlook Emergency Room after complaining of a headache and subsequent vomiting. After extensive testing, a CT scan showed that JT had a brain bleed. Upon learning this, a medical decision was made to immediately transfer JT to Morristown Memorial Pediatric ICU for urgent care. The following morning, JT fell into a coma. Further testing showed he had suffered two small strokes.
In the months since JT first became ill, he has regained consciousness and is making remarkable progress in his recovery, but he still has a very long and difficult road ahead.
Warren Township Community Fire Company #3 in cooperation with Village Supermarket will be hosting a BBQ fund raiser to include a DJ, antique fire engine rides, a dunk tank, games and activities.
