In honor of Joshua turning 16 on September 8, Please join Team Joshua in a VIRTUAL RUN to support The ChadTough Foundation! You can run whenever, wherever, however you want ..
Joshua was a sweet and caring 11 year old when he was diagnosed with Diffuse intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on February 2nd, 2016. Joshua was passionate about the Green Bay Packers, video games and those around him. Soon after being diagnosed, we took a Make A Wish trip to Silicon Valley in order to take a tour of Google. One of his favorite memories was meeting Jordy Nelson, a player for the Packers. Through all of this, Joshua was treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago by Doctors Stewart Goldman and Alica Lenzen. Joshua had to undergo radiation for 6 weeks at Northwestern, in hopes to stop the tumor growth. In June, 2016, Joshua participated in a trial in New York, with Doctor, Mark M. Souweidane and unfortunately resulting in the need for a ventilator. He fought for 11 months before losing his battle on January 15, 2017, leaving behind two sisters, a step sister, parents and step parents.
Although passing away, Joshua has continued to impact and change those who met him, along with those who were unable to meet him in his short time. Just before passing he asked what he had achieved in life, and what his purpose was on earth, questions no 12 year old should begin to think of. Joshua requested to have his brain and brainstem donated for research so that no other children had to go through all the pain that he went through.
