DIPG is an aggressive tumor found in the area of the brainstem that interferes with all bodily functions, depriving a child of the ability to move, to communicate, and even to eat and drink.
DIPG primarily affects children, with most diagnoses occurring between 5 and 7 years of age. DIPG makes up 10-15% of all brain tumors in children, with about 150-300 new diagnoses per year in the United States. Unlike many other pediatric cancers, there has been little progress in improving treatments and cure rates for DIPG over the last few decades. Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of children with DIPG survive two years from diagnosis.
We are raising money for Jeff and Casey to assist covering medical expenses. All donations are greatly appreciated.
