Biography

During his birth, Josh was starved of Oxygen. He then went on to have a bleed on his brain and a stroke. Josh was not expected to live that day..
but he kept on fighting. Fast forward 11 years and we are here today. He's had a tough 11 years but still has smiles and has the most infectious laugh there is.

The effects of his traumatic birth are now clear. Josh cannot sit up, stand, eat, walk or talk, he is also visually impaired and he is fully dependant for all of his care.
At 2 years old, Josh had a massive seizure which left him with a Tracheostomy placed, so that he could breathe. He is also 100% tube fed Via a PEG tube into his stomach with nothing given orally as his swallow is unsafe.
The last 3 years Josh has needed 3 hip surgeries as his muscles are so tight that they have pulled his hips out of the joints.

Epilepsy has been the latest struggle, for 2 years life has been chaotic with daily seizures dispite being on a mixed cocktail of drugs, these are the worst. Before this, his seizures were under reasonable control and now doctors believe the drugs are doing more damage than the seizures themselves and Josh is having routine blood tests and is currently under investigations for his liver.

However, even with all that has happened to him, you would think he has had the greatest of experiences in life, he may not be able to communicate properly but he can light up any room he goes into with his cheeky smile.
