This is my cousin Joshua. He’s 21 years old. He enjoys watching Scooby Doo, The Wiggles, Spongebob, and The Three Stooges. His favorite character is Elmo, who he got to meet for his 21st birthday. He loves all types of music, and likes to sing karaoke. This year is his senior year of high school. He’s very excited to attend his graduation and even prom.
Joshua was born premature, and with a malformation of the brain which caused epilepsy and Cerebral Palsy. At the age of two he had his first brain surgery. He’s had many more surgeries since then, including one to place a metal rod in his back to support his spine due to Scoliosis and a Baclofen Pump placed in his abdomen to reduce the Spasticity.
Joshua’s mother, Tracey, is hoping to raise enough money through donations to purchase a wheelchair accessible van so that she and her husband can safely take Joshua out to explore the world and meet new people, which he loves doing. They also have to drive 3 hours every other month to refill his medication.
If you can, please help, or share this to spread the word. Thank you.
