On January 30 Joshua was diagnosed with a large prolactin-producing tumor in his brain. More information about his condition is on his Caring Bridge site at https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/joshuaecklund

His first surgery was on Feb. 10 and  a second surgery is currently scheduled for 2/23. 

Joshua has taken a leave of absence from his job, so has no income at this time. He will need a period of inpatient rehabilitation and then a place to live. His current living situation, without electricity, running water and requiring wood heat will not be suitable until he is fully recovered, which will take some time. 

We will use funds for any medical copayments, supportive complimentary care following hospitalization, and a safe living environment for Joshua in which to complete his healing. 

This platform does not have the option for us to email you our thanks, but know that Joshua and all of his family deeply appreciate your support. Thank You!
