The Josh and Friends Project made its first visit to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital on Sunday, Nov. 16, 2008. Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) students, along with other volunteers and VIPs, distributed approximately 100 Josh Kits to children in the hospital and read them a special book to help provide mental support and comfort to cope.
Anyone can help The Josh and Friends Project too, by simply making a tax deductable donation. Each Josh Kit costs $40. Just make a check out to "WesternU- SCAVMA" and put "Josh & Friends" on the memo line. Submit it to Lauren Higgins in the College of Veterinary Medicine:
