Did you know?

DIPG has the poorest diagnosis of all brain tumors. Each year, an average of 300 children in the U.S are diagnosed with this type of tumor.

DIPG is almost a 100% death sentence at time of diagnosis. Median survival from the time of diagnosis is 6-9 months. Fewer than 1% will survive past 18 months.

Joshua's Wish

Our Mission:

The mission of Joshua's Wish, Inc. is to fund national medical research efforts in finding a cure for pediatric brain tumors, to support families of children in Georgia who have cancer and are undergoing treatment, and to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

Joshua's Hands:

Joshua’s Hands was formed as an outreach ministry of Joshua’s Wish, Inc.  Joshua’s Hands is a support group for families who have experienced the devastating loss of a child.  We offer support to families who have lost a child no matter the circumstance of how that child died.  Losing a child is unimaginative weather by sudden death or by illness.   Joshua’s Hands seeks to offer comfort and healing in the midst of a storm. 

Joshua’s Hands offers 6 weeks sessions on a quarterly basis. This is a free service.  To register for a 6 week session or for more information please call 478-361-3541.
