Help for Josyah and family!

Josyah is a 4 year old sweet and active little boy who is in my preschool class at Roosevelt Children's Center.

Over the past few weeks we have noticed that Josyah hasn't been acting himself. He has been very tired, not eating much, more emotional, and very low energy. After discussing our observations, mom took him to the doctor where they requested blood work. After a few hours the results came back and they found that his blood levels were extremely low. The next day his doctor sent him up to Golisanos Childrens Hospital so more tests could be done.

After a spinal tap and bone marrow biopsy, it was confirmed the Josyah has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Josyah and his family have a long road ahead of them. Mom will be up at the hospital with him so she will be unable to work.

Please consider helping in any way possible. No donation is too small!

Keep Josyah and his family in your prayers! He is a strong child who WILL beat this!
