Josh was a sixteen year old high school sophomore when he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in February of 2011. His cancer was very aggressive and he was only given a 40% chance of survival. Thankfully, Josh made it through several rounds of intense chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. From the beginning Josh decided that he did not want his AML to bring anybody down, he was not going to sit around crying about it, and he was going to beat it with laughter. He has done just that and is now at home recovering with his family, but they could use assistance with all the medical expenses they have accrued during his lengthy treatment.
