Inspiring the world - one battle at a time.
The Josh Powell Foundation is inspired by and built around the incredible example set by our foundation’s namesake. Our mission is to continue Josh’s vision to motivate others battling adversity by encouraging them to be open about their battle, supporting them in their fight, and reminding them to keep going despite the odds stacked against them. By doing so, we will spark a ripple effect, spreading this positive outlook to everyone and anyone facing hard times. They will, in turn, continue the mission of inspiring others through their own unique, personal journey. We are inspiring the world- one battle at a time.
The Josh Powell Foundation* was founded in honor of 1LT William Joshua Powell by his loving wife, Fabi, and best friend, Dan. At 25 years old, Josh was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called synovial sarcoma in his lower abdomen. This cancer took his life two years and 25 days later, just one month after marrying the love of his life.
Fabi has made it her mission to create a legacy in honor of Josh using his story and vision to motivate and encourage others battling sarcoma cancer to be open about their battle, fight their fight, and Keep Going despite the odds stacked against them. This mindset creates a ripple effect, allowing the positive outlook of those facing adversity to continue to inspire others through their own personal battle. "Inspiring the world one battle at a time."
JPF fulfills its mission by delivering "Powell-Packs" to newly diagnosed sarcoma patients on their first day of treatment providing hope, courage, and strength to these individuals as they take their first steps into a battle they should never have to face. Along with Josh's Keep Going statement, the Powell-Packs include motivational and functional items that can be used on a daily basis as a constant reminder to Keep Going on the days they feel like giving up. Encouraging this positive outlook not only inspires the patient to not let cancer define them and steal their joy, it advances the mission to inspire others through the patients personal battle.
