A few months ago Josh returned from a trip to California complaining of troubled breathing, as the weeks went on he continued to get worse, after days of nagging he finally went to the doctor. The day after his visit he was told he tested positive for mono, the doctor also told him that she saw some things in his blood work that she was concerned about and wanted to refer him to an oncologist. Of course this scared him to death and after hours of googling he decided that his symptoms were all that of mono and he didn't need to go to the oncologist. After a week or so of constant coughing, breathing issues, fevers and more nagging he finally agreed to go to the doctor. A CT scan revealed that he had several tumors in his chest, neck and abdomen, More tests confirmed that he has Stage 3 grey zone lymphoma. This type of lymphoma is incredibly rare and due to the lack of studies the best treatment option is not really known.
I know Josh as my boyfriend and my best friend. You may know him as a family member, friend, or colleague. However you know Josh, you know that he is an amazing, kind, and generous person. He is a person that truly cares about others and improves the lives of the people around him , whether it is through his clothing company ( sink or swim athletics) or his positivity in everyday life.
The good news is that Since his first round of chemo things are looking very positive for him. Unfortunately, he faces a long road of treatment. As you may know, chemo and everything that goes with it is very expensive. Any small amount that you can contribute will be greatly appreciated! Please only donate if you are financially able.
