Josh

Josh had too many tumors to count

In October of 1997, 6 months after his father Randy died suddenly, Josh English age 10, was diagnosed with a rare and fatal form of brain cancer called PNET. Josh had too many tumors to count and was given a less than 15% prognosis (expected chance to live). It was during this treatment that he had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Morgan Adams and her family.

Thanks to the advanced research and clinical studies that were taking place at Children’s Hospital at the time, Josh was able to beat his prognosis.

Today, Josh is 21 years old and is preparing to start his senior year at the University of Northern Colorado with majors in pre-nursing and dietetics. During his spare time he works as a CNA for the Greeley Center for Independence, assisting paraplegics and quadriplegics. Josh enjoys being outdoors. His hobbies include riding his Harley, hunting, boating, snowboarding, and woodworking.  When Josh finishes school he plans to be an RN.

He resides in Greeley with his mom Sheila, his best friend and brother Zach, and his mentor and Dad, Marly. One of the Concours awards is named for Josh.
