My Story

Josh is a sweet, fun loving eleven-year old. He has been so brave through all of this. He has amazed and astounded his family and friends. He loves Spongebob Squarepants, football, video, computer games and origami...especially frogs. He misses his awesomes friends at Crestview Academy! Who are AWESOME! And he loves his nurse CHRIS! Josh has a very rare form of cancer which is called Undifferentiated Embryonal Primitive Sarcoma. There are only 150 documented cases. He had surgery to remove a big portion of his nearly 40 pound tumor on Feburary 29th. Leap day! We have a fondness for frogs, which stands for Fully Rely On God-F.R.O.G. If it weren't for the Lord, we don't know where we'd be. Before Josh was diagnosed, he made literally hundreds of origami frogs. Since then, frogs have been "popping" up every where! God's reminder to rely on Him! We are extremely proud of Josh for going through such a difficult and painful disease with such bravery and strength! You're our hero!
