Joss Parkes Brain Tumour DIPG
Joss Parkes - Our inspiration

‘It’s Disneyland time’ said the consultant after delivering the devastating news that our son was going to die from a DIPG

DIPG robs children of their hearing, sight, movement, the ability to swallow and eventually their breathing. 

Our happy life was shattered by Joss’ diagnosis. Watching him slowly die in front of our eyes was beyond heartbreaking.

A cure needs to be found. Support needs to be given.

It’s only with your help that research into this devastating cancer is possible. 

Joss Searchlight, along with supporting heartbroken families are funding vital research into the most life-threatening brain tumours.

Please be part of our journey.

DIPG brain tumours are currently an incurable and devastating cancer.

DIPG robs a child of their hearing, sight, movement, the ability to swallow and eventually their breathing. 

It’s only with your help that research into this devastating cancer is possible.

Joss Searchlight are funding vital research into the most life-threatening brain tumours. Please be part of our journey.

In the last few years 300 young children have lost their lives to this devastating cancer

Despite killing so many children, DIPG receives just 0.0005% of cancer research funding.

As a charity, we depend entirely on voluntary donations. Your Gift enables us to fund pioneering research and to offer support for people affected by brain tumours.

In the last few months we have managed to fund hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of research that could make a massive difference to children with DIPG and their families.- because of your help.

FAMILY SUPPORT

Along with providing financial grants to help families struggling with the expenses of having a child with cancer we also provide life changing support.

Support Workers who advise, visit and support families with compassion are an essential part of Joss Searchlight.

Family support is in our DNA, as the founding trustees know what an important part compassionate support played in helping them during their son’s illness and after his sad death.

We can’t fund research and we can’t support families without you. 

FINDING A CURE

At Joss Searchlight we totally depend on donations. Donations enable us to fund vital brain tumour research, to find a cure for some of the rarest brain tumours, to campaign for better treatments and support families on their cancer journey when they need it most.

Research organisations need funding stability, they need to know that they have enough money coming in every month to allow them to do their incredibly important work. We need to pledge a certain amount of funding every year to make sure they’re able to do everything they can to find cures and treatment programmes for some of the hardest-to-treat brain tumours.

Children should enjoy their childhood
Not spend their lives fighting cancer

Help us find a cure for aggressive brain tumours. Give your support today
