Story

Josh had dreams of becoming a human rights lawyer. Sadly, he was diagnosed with a diffuse midline glioma (DMG) at the age of 15 and despite radiotherapy and chemotherapy, as well as starting on a clinical trial which he had to stop due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Josh died, aged 18, in February 2021.

Josh wrote in his end of school yearbook 2020: “I want to raise money and awareness for brain tumours with Brain Tumour Research.” He didn't want anyone else to go through what he'd been through. We as a family have set up Team Joshua to fulfil Josh’s wishes, raise awareness of the symptoms of brain tumours, and help fund the fight to bring about better outcomes for patients and ultimately a cure for the devastating disease.

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this disease. We are a leading voice calling for support and action for research into what is called the last battleground against cancer.
