My Story

Joseph is one of the sweetest and considerate children and he is wise beyond his 5 years. He was born 8 weeks premature, but was so strong and grew so quickly. Little did we know what was ahead of him, being diagnosed with ALL at 2 1/2 years old, he has been a fighter since the day he was born. His little life has had a very big impact on all of us who know and love him. We are all blessed to have Joseph in our lives. He loves his dog Jezebelle, likes to help mommy in the kitchen, he doesn't miss an episode of Ben 10 or the chance to play Skylanders with his dad. Oh and he is obsessed with Bon Jovi, Joseph went to his first concert at the ripe old age of 4!!
