Hi my name is Joshua I was diagnosed with Jeunes Thoracic Dystrophy at birth, I have been to Great Ormond Street for to operations to enlarge my chest as it was very small due to having Jeunse. I will be 5 in june, I have been having problems with my tummy bloating up and it caused me to go in to shock a couple of Saturdays ago and i nearly died but the paramedics got me back. I am a very happy and giddy boy and love life to the full. After having this episode on the Saturday I have been told by the hospital that there isnt anything else that they can help me with as they dont have the resorses in this country. My dad has found a hospital in america that could help me but it costs a lot off money that my mum and dad dont have, so I am asking for everyone out there if they could possibly help so that i can have a chance to live a long life with my loving mum and dad, I would be greatfull for any small donation as it will all count. Thank you for reading my story and I hope in your heart you can help. Love Joshua.
You can also Google joshua's full name and you will get the full story of of his brave journey.

Little Joshua has been accepted for the operation in America but we have been given a run down of prices know for the operation and the first to parts are going to cost 1.5 million so my £100.000 won't go very far. Please keep helping as I now have my work cut out to get Joshua the operation he needs. Thank you to everyone that has donated so far.

Not been on for a bit. Joshua is doing really well after having his second chest expansion. Now sitting up on his own and trying to crawl after being told he never would. Such a amazing little boy.
