On August 14, 2009, Joshua Solomon passed away after he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor called DIPG. There is currently no cure or effective treatment and children typically pass away within a year of diagnosis.
Joshua’s parents, Trent and Labrina Solomon, are continuing to fight against childhood cancer through a foundation called Joshua’s Wish.
As of 2012, Joshua’s Wish has donated over $35,000 for pediatric brain tumor research to various medical institutions.
Their goals are to raise awareness of childhood cancer, financially support medical institutions who are researching for a cure, bring research in DIPG to Georgia, and to provide bereavement services to families who have a lost a child.
