Joshua's body is producing too much calcium causing him to continuously grow and produce kidney stones, lose weight and have severe abdominal pain. He's already had 2 extremely painful surgeries to remove the stones and unfortunately may need a 3rd if this continues. The cause has not yet been determined.
To seek prompter medical treatment Joshua will be attending The Cleveland Clinic, at great expense to him and his family. We hope the treatment he receives there will return him to the quality of life he enjoyed before this illness and he can once again share his wonderful gifts and energy with us. All donations will go directly to helping the family with providing care and accommodation for Joshua.
