Meet Josh, he’s 22 years old ~ Fighting the fight living with Cystic Fibrosis~
Josh loves sports, especially pro/ college Basketball & Football. He is an avid viewer & listener of sports radio.
You can find Josh playing 1 of his several guitars. He is self taught and enjoys listening and playing music. His loves are his dogs Xena, Blue & Gemma, Bailey & Biscotti~ rough housing is their game and they love to keep him on his toes!
Josh just started a small dog breeding business. His love for goldendoodles and dogs in general have brought him full circle. You can find his pups on FB joshsgolendoodles.
What you may not know about Josh is that he has Cystic Fibrosis. When Josh was born and diagnosed with CF the doctors told me he wouldn't live past the age of 13. Well guess what, Josh is about to turn 23 on May 18 !! What a huge milestone and surely something to celebrate. It's with the help of so many people who help raise money for CF that aids scientists, doctors, nurses and researchers find advancing medicines to prolong the effects cf has on the body and hopefully one day soon a CURE! This Year has started off with great strides for Josh as he's started a new medication called Trikafta ! This revolutionary drug is know to help lessen the effects that CF has on the body~We will keep everyone posted via our facebook page.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:
clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
Frequent lung infections.
Here is how you can make a difference too- Join our team “Team Josh “! Set a personal fundraising goal and ask your co-workers, friends and family to donate for Great Strides walk to help cure Cystic Fibrosis. There is no actual walk this year~ we are doing a Virtual walk for CF~
