As we all know, cancer is a cruel and non-biased disease.
Hi, I’m Josh Patterson and I’m a father of three beautiful daughters and I’m also an Aboriginal man based in Orange, NSW.
If you live in Orange, chances are I’ve mowed your lawn, as I’ve been working seven days a week for the past five years to build mylawn mowing business called Picture Perfect Lawn Maintenance. My business helps to support my family and the local Aboriginal community.
Sadly though, in 2019, I was diagnosed with Polycythaemia Vera cancer. It’s a very rare bone cancer and it was pretty sneaky, as it didn’t appear in any normal blood tests.
Australia doesn’t provide the treatment I need to survive, so I have to go to America for treatment. As a result, I need your help in the way of financial assistance to cover the costs of medical treatment and travel to try the breakthrough stem cell cancer program in the United States.
Trust me, I’m not about to give up any time soon, as my Mrs and my three young daughters need me. Also, if I can get back on my feet, I can continue to grow my business and employ more Indigenous youth in Orange.
I’d be very grateful if you could donate anything at all, but most of all I’d be really grateful if you could share my Go Fund Me page to your social networks.
If you have any questions, please pick up the phone and call me on 0423 056 429. I have chemo every day, so sometimes I don’t answer my calls immediately, but I’ll try my best to answer every call. If I don’t, then please text me and call again.
Rest assured, once I’m cured, I’ll be back running my business and giving back to my community big time!
