Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG, is the leading cause of childhood brain tumor deaths. Every year, 200-400 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with DIPG, and most of them will only survive nine months, or about as long as the typical school year. There is currently no consistent standard of care for these kids, and few treatments.
DIPG is a particularly terrible disease that leaves children and their families with limited options and limited time.
Please contact your member of Congress and ask for support of House Resolution 114, which would designate May 17th as “DIPG Awareness Day” to spread awareness about this deadly disease, and support researchers in their efforts to find new therapies to treat DIPG and all childhood cancer.
Take action now to support this resolution!
