Seven-year-old Josh Hardy’s story is gaining national media attention.
His family will appear on CNN tonight at 7 and on Fox and Friends Monday at 8:20 a.m.
Josh, a first-grader at Hugh Mercer Elementary in Fredericksburg, is fighting for his life at St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. He has fought cancer since he was 9 months old, but was cancer-free for two years. After a recent bone-marrow transplant, however, Josh’s health declined when he developed an infection. He needs a very specific drug to get better.
A 5 p.m. prayer service is planned at Fairview Baptist Church, where Josh’s family worships. The church is located at 900 Charlotte Street in Fredericksburg.
