This interview is about 30 minutes long and gives a good picture of the juicing process Joshua goes through. He juices twice a day and it takes him 2 hours each time. But its keeping him alive! This gives more insight into the spiritual journey that Joshua has been on, what the diagnosis and care has been like, the role that juicing is playing in his fight, and other topics too. Thank you to Roger Routh, for putting this video together. I think it gives people a connection to Joshua and his journey that they otherwise might not ever get. We’re so appreciative. Enjoy!
Online Auction now open!
Joshua’s online auction fundraiser is now OPEN and will close at 9pm on Saturday, April 7th! Items can be shipped, so anyone can participate, regardless of location!

I mentioned in an earlier post that Josh would not be singing at his fund raiser. Well, in the hours and minutes before the concert I was able to successfully pull the audio from our wedding video, which has Joshua singing “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” It ended up working and was a perfect way to close the evening. What a great concert! Bobby was fantastic, MaryAnn and Dave and Jean Mellor did a wonderful job not only pulling it all together, but providing an unbelievable amount of gifts and prizes for those that came, other volunteers who gave of their time and energy made the night a lot of fun and very meaningful. We will try and post some video soon, but I thought I would go ahead and post the song I played at the end of the night. So, without further ado…here is Joshua singing “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”
Hello Everyone! With the concert coming within the day, I wanted to let people know ahead of time that as much as Josh would like to sing one song for all of you, and that was his hope at one time (after the many years of singing in that very theatre at his alma mater) he’s just currently not feeling strong enough to do so. Its hard to say whether he is dealing with Decadron withdrawal (which can suppress your adrenal system for a long time), another medication side effect, or merely the ups and downs of his body fighting cancer, he’s currently experiencing some extreme fatigue. But it should be a great night with everything else and we look forward to seeing those that can make it. And we will definitely try to post all or part of the concert for others who can not be here. Love to you all, Naomi
And we can’t forget the upcoming concert THIS Saturday at Washington Hish School! Bobby is great, from what I hear, and I am looking forwad to hearing him! He opens for Mercy Me during the summer as well. Please come, enjoy the music, mingle, win some prizes…and get to hear Joshua sing a song as well! Thank you to Bobby, MaryAnn, Dave, Washington HS, those of you that have helped publicize this, and anyone else who is helping to pull this together!
It is a full month of fund raising efforts, of which we are extremely grateful! It is true when Joshua says, “I wouldn’t be able to fight the cancer without the help of others!” You truly are helping to keep Joshua alive! Medication can only help to a certain degree. Obviously he is responding to the Tarceva well, but if we were to fight this cancer with just the medication it is likely that his system would develop a tolerance at some point to the medication, and the cancer would begin gaining ground in his body. That is typically how this form of cancer takes lives. His organic juicing and new diet completely changes his internal environment so that his body has every available resource it needs to go above and beyond what medication alone would be able to accomplish. I believe nutrition is as much a cause of the absence of cancer in Joshua’s body, if not a greater cause! And Josh is committed! I am very proud of him!
So, we look look forward to enjoying good music and amazing company with so many of you this up coming weekend! And to those of you far away or unable to be there, we feel the love and support even though we will probably never have the chance to personally thank each one of you. And if Joshua sings a song on Saturday, I will do my best to post a video here!
