Helping Josh give help and hope to children and their families who have brain tumours, post-surgery disabilities along Josh’s Journey.
- We help children who have or have had a brain tumour, we support their families with advice, guidance and financial solutions, with special focus on those who also have post-surgery disabilities.
- We help organisations along Josh’s Journey, hospitals, care centres, special schools and brain tumour awareness groups.
- We help raise awareness of the need for improved changing facilities for young people and adults. (Josh wore pads and it became increasingly difficult to find places to change as he got older.) We want to raise awareness of this difficulty, with the public, businesses and other organisations. Find out more here.
How can we help?
Here are some of the ways we help families across England and Wales:
- We give families grants for hospital expenses and travel – a two week stay can cost over £200 in meals, parking, petrol etc.
- We can provide specialist equipment and house adaptations such as ceiling track hoists and through-floor lifts. These are vital when it comes to moving and handling big heavy lumps like Josh was! These cost between £4K and £10K each.
- We help with special treats, like holidays after Chemotherapy, to give families holistic respite and time together again to be normal, so important after such stressful times.
- We help hospitals by donating teenage entertainment packages, full of Xbox’s, TVs and iPads.
