Most of us at 17 were drinking in empty parking lots, waiting for college to come around so we could finally be free to do whatever the hell we wanted.
Josh doesn’t have that luxury. He’s 17, has both leukemia and brain cancer, and, according to doctors, only a couple of months to live.
I’m not going to pretend to know what that feels like, I honestly can’t begin to imagine the pain him and his family must be going through. But we walk around with our heads downs, focused on ourselves, and sometimes we forget just how lucky we are. Not just to be healthy, but to know that we are surrounded by good people who actually care and are willing to help, even if only to put a smile on a kid’s face.
Let’s take time to remember.
Josh is a HUGE Marvel Comics fan and his family, knowing that, blindly tagged some of the most famous people in the world with the hope that maybe one or two of them reached out.
They didn’t disappoint.
These videos are obviously not going to cure Josh, but we all do what we can, and you bet your ass they made his day. And if that doesn’t warm your soul just a little bit, well, I don’t know what to tell ya.
