A Staten Island Mom is reaching out to the community to help her son who is battling cancer.

Jessica Irizarry started a Go Fund Me page to help pay for medical bills and basic family expenses.

Her 12 year old son Joshua was diagnosed last February with Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. 

The West Brighton Mom has been on unpaid medical leave to take care of her son and two daughters since Joshua's diagnosis. 

"Even though times are tough you never give up... You think there's no one there for you remember everyone is. Everyone's trying to help. Even the people who seem like they don't care they do," she said. 

Joshua recently underwent emergency hip replacement surgery and is set to undergo two more cycles of chemotherapy in the coming months. The family's Go Fund Me Page is still accepting donations.  Search for Joshua's fight to win.
