A Better World Running – Rockin’ Summer 2019

My son Josh was always willing to help a co-worker, a friend, a neighbor or someone he’d just met.  He loved coaching his sons' basketball teams, talking to people and making them laugh.  He loved his family and he didn't just say it, he showed it. He also liked tattoos and many of his family and friends got them too in support of Josh's fight. He was a happy and healthy UPS driver raising his two sons until his severe back pain revealed his Stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis.  

Josh was diagnosed in July 2009. He fought with all he had and with all his doctors had to help him.  He wanted so much to see his sons, Tyler and Justin, grow up - they were his world and he would be so proud of the young men they are today.  Josh and passed in Jan 2011, two weeks after his 35th birthday.

Josh kept a positive attitude during his battle and never gave up! 

When you make a donation in support of pancreatic cancer research, you’re helping the Hirshberg Foundation and our researchers get closer to a cure. Funding scientific advances and programs for patients and families helps provide resources today and offers hope for a cancer-free world in the future.
