Bailey is a 4 year old loving little princess that has been diagnosed with DIPG at OU medical. This is a brain tumor in the pons of the brain, where it controls her breathing, heart and all motor functions.  A few days later Bailey began her journey at St. Jude research  hospital.  Where Lisa and Bailey spent 8 weeks ,doing radiaion  therapy and hundreds  of Dr.  appointments and discussing clinical trials.  After multiple  denials of trials and insurance battle. Bailey  finally  got accepted  to join a phase 1 trial at MSKCC in New York city. The Dodson family  spent 6 weeks in the big apple. Now with Bailey's tumor  still shrinking, the Dodson family will return  to St. Jude in a few weeks, to hopefully enroll in a new clinical trial to help defeat this monster that she is fighting. Lisa and Bailey may have to spend up to 13 months away from home depending on trial requirements. Jack will be traveling back and forth during this time and trying to take care of her older siblings, as well as help from grandparents. We ask for your prayers and support for this beautiful princess that is fighting a monster of DIPG
