Oscar's DIPG Fund

€48,470 of €10,000 goal

Raised by 2,149 people in 10 months
In January 2018 our magical 3 1/2 year old son Oscar was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a rare brain tumour that has no known cure. Due to the location of the tumour and the fact it grows amidst the nerves, it is inoperable. There is a less than 1% chance of survival and 90% of children diagnosed will die within 18 months. A biopsy has shown that Oscar's is the most aggressive type so his prognosis is not good. 

Experimental treatment isn’t an option for Oscar. We were told by the experts anything that had any real results would of course be offered to us but as of now, the only thing that works is radiation and only for a time.

So we have started this GoFundMe page simply to give our son the time of his life for however long that is. Trips away and days out and ice creams and toys and anything else that will help bring a little magic and joy to him.

We will also be donating money from it to cancer research and charities in Ireland. We aren’t going to ask you to dig deep, if you have something to spare and want to give it we would be hugely grateful, but we would be just as grateful for your hopes and kind thoughts for Oscar.

Thank you.

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported Oscar. The response has been so overwhelming and we are eternally grateful to each and every one of you. At a time where our world has come crashing down, your kind words, thoughts and support have kept us going and given us hope! Oscar has started radiotherapy and is being a real trooper. After three tough days he has the weekend off to relax. Daddy and Granddad painted his bedroom today and we have lots of new fun things to put in to make his room extra special for him. Don't forget to follow us on social media to help spread awareness of DIPG. Thanks again!!
