The Lucas O'carroll Scholarship

Ryan Kitchin is shaving his head to raise money to support The Lucas O'Carroll Scholarship with The Isabella and Marcus Paediatric Brainstem Tumor Foundation Fund.

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a brain stem cancer that only occurs in children and carries the worse prognosis of all paediatric cancers. The charity is funding three laboratories in Melbourne to study the brainstem tumor (DIPG) and to develop an animal model that can be used to develop new treatments. The laboratories are located within the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Monash Uni and Monash Institute of Medical Research. The charity is also providing 2-3 PHD scholarships each year to seed future scientists with a background in DIPG research.
