Joshua Michael Virklan Awareness Fund

Help us raise awareness for those who struggle with addiction.


    Josh has been struggling with addiction for the last 5 years of his life. With the help of 3 wonderful rehabs and family support he gained the desire to want recovery for himself. In the last year of his life, he was losing his battle with addiction over time. He realized he could not do it on his own and was afraid for his life. He came to his family for support, and they helped him through the worst of his heroin addiction. As the year went by and after 2 last rehab stays, Josh lost his battle with addiction.

    Heroin does not discriminate, it is not a lifestyle choice. That is why we are collecting donations in memory of Josh to help recovering addicts. Your donation will be going to an amazing cause to help people who are struggling with addiction. 

This campaign has been created in partnership with
Fred C. Dames Funeral Home and Crematory
3200 Black Road at Essington Rds., Joliet, IL 60431
