Joshua Joel Oakhills fun and bubbly personality has won the hearts of many as the brave five-year-old battles cancer.
However, he is now losing his strength and mother Hannah White and Joshua are returning home to Eden to spend the final stages of his life as best they can.
Joshua was diagnosed with a rare form of soft-tissue cancer at three years old. He has since received 43 cycles of chemotherapy and 24 cycles of radiation at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital. More recently he was hit with news the tumour in his liver has proved too persistent to cure.
We thought everything was fine at the start but when he got his scans back, within three weeks the tumour had grown back more aggressive, Joshuas nan Julie Wells said.
His family admired Joshuas ability to be so brave after spending 1.5 years of his life in hospitals. After moving to Sydney Childrens Hospital for a further six cycles of treatments, medical professionals confirmed the tumour in his liver had spread and there was nothing more they could do.
From what I understand, Joshua may be with us for the next few months or up to a year depending on whether Hannah decides to prolong his life or let him live his life out, Ms Wells said.
Joshua knows he is sick, but in his best interests Ms Wells said he doesnt know how sick he is.
With help from the community, friends and family, Joshua is looking forward to accomplishing his bucket list of wishes which include re-creating the video game Fortnite in real life (paintball), going on a boat, meeting Paw Patrol and going for a ride in a truck.
Something at the top of his bucket list is to be able to go to school for the very first time.
He is really looking forward to school, maybe if possible we were thinking he could do half an hour each day just so he could get that experience, Ms Wells said.
Its all still being discussed on how we can do it.
In the meantime his family remain positive, while the doctors appointments are still scheduled in the hope they come across a miracle drug that will give Joshua his life back.
The community continues to show support by posting videos to his Facebook page, each video is a unique rendition of the chicken dance Joshuas favourite dance.
Anyone can post their videos of their chicken dance with the hashtag #doitforjoshie he has watched every single one and joins in! Ms Wells said.
