THE STORY:

Joshua Coley was an angelic, loving, spiritual and strong young man! He was love and showed love to all. At the age of 8, Joshua was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He underwent 3 brain surgeries over 2 years and his fought his way back from each one of them. :) In April 2014, Joshua had a crisis and had to hospitalized. It was then that the Dr informed his parents that the disease was spreading and there was nothing else they could do.

Our family Joined to together to pray. We tried to will Joshua to stay with us, but it was his time. On May 6th 2014, at the age of 10, Joshua return to his true home........ Where Angels belong!

Due to his condition, Joshua's parents were unable to obtain life insurance. So at this time we are asking for any help with funeral & burial costs and personal financial assistance. Joshua's parents, Fred and LaShonda Coley, are under an tremendous amount of stress, and they also have 4 other boys to continue to take care of. Fred had to take a leave from work to help care for Joshua. LaShonda cared for him 24 hours a day.

We are our brother’s keeper! Please give anything you can to assist the family.... OUR FAMILY! They need us at a time like this. To lay Joshua to rest is not just for his parents, but all of the Coley extended family! Any amount, big or small, will help. Please give your best gift. All donations will go directly to the family with no middle person involved. Love is action, so let's show Fred, LaShonda and Joshua how much we love them all!
