Josh Sexton

Florence, MS - Osteosarcoma

In January 2016, Josh was diagnosed with a form of bone cancer known as osteosarcoma. With the care of the oncology team and other specialists at Children's of Mississippi, he immediately began chemotherapy.  In an attempt to stop the cancer from spreading, Josh's right arm had to be amputated.

Despite these challenges, Josh remains positive and never really lets anything get him down. He completed his chemotherapy treatment in October and will continue to undergo regular bone scans. 

Josh loves football, baseball, and playing Xbox. The nine-year-old holds big plans for his future, saying he wants to be a professional athlete, to sing, and to compete in the Paralympic Games in swimming and track and field.
