About Our Auction
The purpose of this Silent Auction is to raise money for the Josh Powell Foundation. 100% of the proceeds will directly fund JPF growth and project costs, Keep Going packages that are sent out weekly to sarcoma patients, loved ones, and surviving family members to provide hope and encouragement to Keep Going despite adversity. The proceeds of this silent auction will also help JPF grow beyond wristbands and postcards and allow us to expand to other items such as Keep Going blankets, shirts, stuffed animals etc. that will be gifted to children and young adults battling sarcoma in hospitals all over the world.
About Josh Powell Foundation
The Josh Powell Foundation was founded in honor of 1LT William Joshua Powell by his loving wife, Fabi. 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 he married 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-Pack includes 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 of inspiring others through the patients own unique, personal journey.
