Fighting for a Cure
Josh, the adored younger brother of sister Kim, passed away aged 29, four years after being diagnosed with a pilocytic astrocytoma brain tumour. Despite two craniotomies and Gamma Knife surgery, nothing could save Josh. The passionate Port Vale and Chelsea FC supporter planned his own funeral at which his beloved dog, Diggs, named after one of Josh’s surgeons, led the procession.
Kim set up Fighting for a Cure as a way of keeping Josh’s memory alive among his friends and family, and particularly for her young son Joey who was very close to his uncle Josh.
