Welcome to the Team Joshua Spin 4 Kids fundraising page! We hope that you'll consider making a donation towards Team Joshua or even create your own fundraising page to help us reach our team goal as well as to honor Joshua’s current fight against a form of Sarcoma. Spin for Team Joshua and Spin 4 Kids.
Ocean county, NJ resident Joshua is a 16-year-old, autistic kiddo (non-verbal) with a big, kind heart who LOVES any and all Spanish food, basketball and listening to music (Michael Jackson being his favorite, but he also loves to relax to Beethoven and Mozart).
At the end of February a slight pain in Joshua's back turned into a loss of mobility in a matter of days. After weeks of testing it was discovered that Joshua had tumors growing on his spine and in his chest (form of sarcoma). His oncology team was able to remove the mass on his spine entirely, but he needed intense rounds of chemo in order to shrink the one in his chest before surgery can be attempted. This initial diagnosis had Joshua in the hospital for just over 2.5 months! After his most recent scans it’s been determined that the tumor shrunk enough in Joshua’s chest that they can try to surgically remove the entire thing (surgery is happening mid July). Following surgery Joshua’s going to continue to need vigorous PT and eventually more chemo and radiation with the hope that he’ll be entirely cancer free by November.
About Infinite Love
Infinite Love is a 100% volunteer-run 501c3 nonprofit foundation with the dual missions of 1) funding new pediatric cancer research (click here for an itemized list of what we've already funded), and 2) providing financial and emotional support to families currently fighting childhood cancer. Because there are no Infinite Love salaries, everything that you give goes entirely to our cause! Thanks to generous supporters like you, since 2013 we have funded over $1 million in research grants to some of our country's leading research hospitals and facilities and we've written thousands of dollars of support checks to childhood cancer families, given backyard makeovers, sent kids to sports events, built dream tree houses and we’ve unfortunately even covered the expenses for memorials (click here to read reviews about Infinite Love).
Please note that this Team Joshua page is raising funds for Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer where 100% of the proceeds will be used to fund research and to help families affected by childhood cancer. This fundraising page is not raising funds for Joshua’s family.
