Josh Webb is no stranger to NorthStar Church. He has been a member since 2004 and has played guitar and sang with the worship team for over 17 years. He also led the creative team for 4 years. Four months months ago, Josh was diagnosed with a brain tumor- an acoustic neuroma- that was lodged against his brain stem. 

On April 29th, Josh had surgery to remove it. The tumor was 3.4cm large and was embedded in several nerves. During surgery the surgeons had to do extensive work on those nerves to remove the tumor, leaving Josh with deafness in his right ear and paralysis of the right side of his face. 

Josh is having to relearn normal every day skills with his right hand, and regain balance. The Webbs are hopeful that with physical, occupational, and speech therapies and a hearing aide, his quality of life will be much improved.
