Josh Coppoth

Josh Coppoth had emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor last year, and since then has bravely faced a grueling regimen of radiation and chemotherapy. He will receive his last full chemotherapy treatment on May 1. Josh has managed to maintain straight As in school even though he has been homebound through most of this year. He has been named the recipient of the Anderson Security Citizenship Award for 2008 because of his ability to share his bravery with a soldier in Iraq. Josh has decided he wants to be a doctor when he grows up so that he can repay in someway those that have been there for him.
