Meet Josh, Dr. Lange’s Golden Retriever. Josh is the main character in a children’s book written by Dr. Lange called I’ll Be O.K. In this book, Josh takes a child through a hospital visit including diagnostic procedures, surgery and recovery. The book was written to help answer questions and alleviate some of the fears that children may experience prior to their visit to the hospital. The Josh Project has been adopted by the Children’s Miracle Network, the world’s largest fund-raising organization representing 170 children’s hospitals in North America. Josh was recently awarded “CMN Champion” status, joining such celebrities as Steve Young, Drew Bledsoe, Mary Lou Retton, Donny and Marie Osmond, John Schreider, and many others. He is the only “four-legged” CMN Champion and has traveled extensively across the United States with Dr. Lange visiting children’s hospitals to bring hope and encouragement to sick children. Josh has a big heart and a mission of love.
