Fight for River to beat DIPG

When the unimaginable happens, we need the people around us the most. For those of us that know Robbie and Alicia, you know that they are kind, patient, and giving people. The kind of friends that would do anything for you. Right now, they need our help.

Several weeks ago, they took their daughter River in for eye testing, and the unimaginable happened. River was diagnosed with a rare, terminal, brain cancer. Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) are highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors found at the base of the brain. They are glial tumors, meaning they arise from the brain's glial tissue—tissue made up of cells that help support and protect the brain's neurons, making them impossible to remove.

Robbie and Alicia, with the help of their families, have been investigating alternative treatments for River in the last couple of weeks. They have started her on an anti-inflammatory diet (KETO-like), purchased gear to aid in her fight, and have her on a multitude of alternative supplements to reduce inflammation and combat the spread of the tumor. They're also looking into a Rife machine and several other advancements in hopes of keeping the tumors at bay. Armed with a new plan and the motivation to follow through, their family and friends have a new found faith that miracles can happen!

Please join this young family in the fight for their daughter's life and to bring more awareness to this awful disease.
