A brave, experienced soldier. A fighter. A person engaged in some incomprehensible struggle or conflict. That my friends, is the definition of a Warrior. This is why we are proud to feature our very first ever, Five Time Foundation 5x Warrior of the Month, Joshua Irizarry!
Joshua is an epic thirteen year old warrior from Staten Island, New York, who is battling Osteosarcoma. Joshua was first diagnosed at age eleven. Since his diagnosis, he’s had to undergo multiple surgeries, including a full hip replacement due to the tumor growth, as well as various treatments like chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Joshua and his family would later come to learn that the cancer had spread to his lungs. Joshua and his family are currently seeking secondary answers and treatments at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
When Joshua is not feeling the awful side effects of his treatment, such as bone pain and nerve damage from his hands to his feet, he is at home spending time with his loving and supportive family; his mother Jessica and his sister, Madison. He loves his stuffed animal collection, jamming on his rad guitar, and playing his Xbox, where he kicks major butt in Fortnite!
Through this fund raising campaign, Joshua and his family will have their daily expenses covered. Joshua will receive his supplements and alternative treatments without worry!
Thank you for taking the time to read about our very first time ever Warrior of the Month. Please continue to share and spread our message so that we may continue to support our Warriors!
