“Helping children and their families who have brain tumours and post surgery disabilities and others along Josh’s Journey”

The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity (charity reg number 1151518) relies on the support of the public to enable us to provide our help and services offered.

In 2004 Joshua 3 ½ was diagnosed with a brain stem tumour. Life – saving surgery to remove the tumour left Josh with serious post-surgery disabilities. Josh’s parents Dawn and Colin, began a new journey living their boy who now had complex needs, bringing costly challenges and difficult battles to fight to ensure he had a positive & happy life.

Almost 10 years later on Josh’s 13th Birthday in 2013, Josh mum Dawn, launched The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity with the aim of helping other families living with childhood brain tumours, post surgery disabilities and others along his journey.

From Christmas 2013 Dawn and Colin were told seven times in 11 months that their son only had 48 hours to live. Josh defied all odds earning his nickname SuperJosh and he turned 14 in August of 2014 but sadly died in November.

Since his passing, Dawn and Josh’s other family & friends have maintained their commitment to his Charity and continue to help children, young people and their families in his legacy.

It’s an amazing journey and to date we have raised over £700,000 and have helped over 1,600 families thanks to our wonderful supporters and the generous help of the public.
