Help Josh beat pancreatic cancer!!
Josh was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer on September 14, 2018. To say we are devastated is an understatement.
Josh is a proud graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and after graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army. From 2004-2012 Josh served on active duty, spending much of his time in the distinguished US Army 75th Ranger Regiment. Josh sacrificed greatly to serve our country with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, Josh continues to serve as a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard.
When Josh isn't working as an IT contractor, he is a GORUCK Cadre, leading fitness-focused community-building events throughout the country.
Josh has touched the lives of many throughout that community. Josh has made great efforts over the last four years to utilize the GORUCK community to support the Wisconsin chapter of Snowdrop Foundation.
Their mission is to raise money for pediatric cancer research and to provide college scholarships to students who have beaten cancer or who are still fighting. Josh has organized an annual GORUCK event in Appleton, WI, with all proceeds benefiting Snowdrop. This year alone the event raised over $21,000.
This brave, stoic, yet fun-loving father of two young boys, now needs our help. As you can imagine, the medical bills are starting to come in and as Josh is currently a contract worker, his income may become unstable during his arduous treatment.
Please help us raise money for this Ranger, father, son, brother, and GORUCK Cadre. We have the opportunity to help ease some of the stress that comes with difficult treatment and the bills that go along with them.
Never out of the fight. Rangers Lead The Way!
Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you all know that all funds that were raised (and not used by Josh) and all funds that continue to accumulate are placed in a trust fund for his two boys. Thank you all for your continued support as we honor and grieve for Josh.
