Sup­port Josh’s fight

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Melinda Brad­ford melinda.brad­ford@isistc­

WHILE I don’t per­son­ally know Josh or his fam­ily, it’s clear that he’s a fighter.

He has en­dured more than most 15-year-old’s are sub­jected to as he bat­tles a rare form of leukaemia in Bris­bane.

What is also clear is that this teen is one very much loved young man.

Back home we have a num­ber of people fundrais­ing to help Josh’s fam­ily as they deal with the ev­ery­day ex­penses that are adding up.

Just last week Isis District State High School stu­dents got right be­hind Josh, host­ing a free dress and crazy hair day to raise money and aware­ness.

It’s heart-warm­ing to see the com­mu­nity pull to­gether to sup­port one of their own.

Josh will need all the sup­port he can get as his fight is not yet over.

The teen will spend the next six weeks in isolation while he un­der­goes in­ten­sive treat­ment.

But Josh is one de­ter­mined young man.

When I spoke with Josh, he said he was com­ing home fit and healthy.

We await your re­turn Josh and wish you all the very best in your lat­est bat­tle.

You can help Josh by mak­ing a do­na­tion to Sh­eryl Nimmo at the high school.
