Josh was born July 27, 1985 and lived in Bakersfield California until his parents moved to Yerington Nevada. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July, 2004 at the age of 19. He had surgery but it had spread so rapidly through-out his body and he had to have several rounds of Chemo.
Challenge Coins (also used for poker card protectors) are a great way to show your support of the Josh Farler Foundations work. These attractive coins can be purchased directly from our online store for $25.
Earlier this year Clickteam ,a small software company based in Paris France, had a sale. The sale was held on the website Humble Bundle (www.humblebundle.com) and had a charity component. Clickteam choose the Josh Farler Foundation (JFF) as the supported charity.
Through the tens of thousands of Humble Bundle users the sale was quite successful not only for Clickteam but for the Josh Farler Foundation. Humble Bundle provided a donation of ~$100,000 to the foundation. The JFF board can not fully express how thankful we are or how much this donation will help our efforts.
The board again extends its deepest thanks to Clickteam/Humble Bundle, and will take great care to ensure the maximum use of the funds donated!
