My Story

Joshua was one tough guy! He had pushed through many complications over the past 3 years from the treatment for his leukemia. He received a bone marrow transplant from his older sister, Sarah, but relapsed one year later. After 2 rounds of harsh chemo and several very serious infections, he went through antibody and "T" cell treatment at N.I.H. These put him back in remission, so back to Hopkins he went in September for a second transplant. We called him the "Boomerang Boy" because he always came back around! Joshua loved video games, Legos, pizza, the Annoying Orange, his dog (Bailey), science and space and wanted to work for NASA when he grew up. He hated being in the hospital and having people disturb his sleep all the time. Joshua had a very devoted group of friends who had stood by him through this entire ordeal. His idea of a perfect day is playing video games in his basement "man cave" with his buddies, building a Lego Ninjago set, eating pizza and then going out to jump on his trampoline. Joshua loved the beach and hoped to finally be able to go back to swim in the ocean. He is also looked forward to getting back on his neighborhood swim team with all of his friends.
