My Story

Josh was the most loving and selfless person anyone could ever know.He had an older brother and 3 younger sisters who he loved so much. He fought hard and strong for 6 years. Even when his body was giving up on him, he didn't give up on himself or anyone else. I am very lucky to be his mother.We know that he is looking down on us all right now with that smile of his, in no pain and still not giving up on us all down here. We love you, our Super Angel!! (written by Josh's mom) I first knew of Josh when he showed up on my class list  for one of my 10th grade English classes in the fall of 2013. He was tutored at home by a wonderful woman who developed a deep friendship with Josh. She worked with Josh two hours each school day and towards the end of his fight, she worked with him an hour a day to keep a routine and some normalcy in Josh's challenging life on Earth. While Josh fought his battle he used Superman as his symbol of strength and endurance. Team Josh is honored to raise funds so cures for childhood cancers may be found one day soon. We are a team of all ages.  I am very proud of the Oswego High School students who chose to shave their heads in Josh's honor in 2014--Cheyenne Diaz, Mandee Lagoe, Cassidy Taylor, Chris (Grant) Kelly, Dillon Gibson, John Parkhurst, and Francis Dahar as well as Josh's family members and our other team members who sacrificed their hair. Bald is indeed beautiful!!
