Help Me Help a Friend

Dear friends, Josh is a friend who was just diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. It has spread throughout his body, and he recently had a large tumor removed from his spine.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist.
