"Boy of the Year"

In 2007, New Hope for Kids Wishes for Kids program made a once-in-a-lifetime wish come true for a little boy named Joseph. This precious child who loves Mickey Mouse, the water and big boats, was sent on a Disney cruise with his family. The memories they created together are priceless and will be treasured forever.

Joseph, now 5 years old, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) at age 2, a disease he still fights today. In spite of his illness, Joseph lives a full life complete with school work, crafts and playing Spiderman games on his Xbox. His health care team has affectionately given him the title of “Dr. Joseph”.

This year, Joseph will hold a new title: “Boy of the Year” for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). He'll bring attention to the need for a cure for blood cancers and will raise funds for LLS research. Visit www.cfl.LLSevent.org/DrJoseph to make a donation to “Dr. Joseph's” campaign, or you can send a check made payable to LLS to 3319 Maguire Blvd., Suite 101, Orlando, FL 32803. Please write “Dr. Joseph” in the memo section of your check.
