    Our friend Josiah Filson, at the age of 22, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2003. He fought hard and won that battle. In the fall of 2008, after five good years he was given the news that the cancer was back and in its most aggressive form. He is currently receiving the highest level of chemotherapy available.

    You can visit with him at

    On March 10, 2009, along with his wife Brooke, they welcomed their first child, Jonah David, into the world. He arrived a month early but, like his dad, “He’s a fighter!” Jonah is doing very well.

    Josiah is in the Law Enforcement profession and needs our help with their family’s mounting medical bills. We are holding a benefit in his honor to help raise money for the Filson Family.

    Josiah was a Detention Deputy for Hennepin County when he was first diaganoised. In the following years he competed his bachelor's at Concordia, completed skills at MCTC and was working as a Park Service Officer for Three Rivers Park District. Now he has a new baby boy that was five weeks early and the whole family is hurting.

    He is a good guy and has had some tough times. Help if you can, or just come down and have a good time.
