Help this music teacher return to the life he loves!

Joshua, a Pittsburgh native, has been teaching music lessons since he was in middle school. After receiving his degree in Music Education, he settled into teaching music to elementary students in Rochester, New York. For the past 5 years, he has brought the joy of music to more than 600 students. During his third year of his most recent position, a nagging cough sent him to the doctor. After months and months of testing and treatments, Joshua was finally diagnosed: pulmonary hypertension, polymitosis and Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Josh’s treatment for rejection at the hospital last week went smoothly. He continues to make amazing progress in physical therapy. The next bronch and follow-up appointments will be in a few weeks, so we are hoping those produce good results and that we get some information on when we might come back to Rochester. Blood draws have been difficult lately, so please pray that the nurse is able to find veins to make productive blood draws. Thank you!

Josh did not have any infection, thankfully! He is being treated this week in the hospital (outpatient) for the rejection, and that is going well so far. Thanks for your continued prayers and support!
