Hazel is a vibrant little 3 year old girl who loves puppies and playing hide and seek. Her sweet giggles light up any room she enters. But this summer, her family noticed a slight change in her demeanor which led to the unimaginable diagnosis of DIPG.
Curing DIPG Is Tough, But We're Tougher!
In the fight for a DIPG/DMG cure, we help patients and families by funding game-changing research and providing navigation throughout their journey.
What is DIPG?
DIPG is a devastating type of childhood brain tumor. It impairs a kid's ability to see, move, eat, talk, and even breathe. These aggressive tumors are vexingly hard to treat and are almost always fatal.
A cure for DIPG is within reach.
Researchers have made great strides in understanding DIPG, but much more research is needed to discover truly effective treatments.
November 28, 2023 Mark your calendar for Giving Tuesday and help us #DefeatDIPG. We are once again bringing together an incredible group of passionate families who have been impacted by childhood brain cancer to raise funds for research.
Give a ray of hope to the children who are diagnosed with pediatric brain cancer — especially DIPG, the deadliest type — by becoming a sustaining donor now. Even a small monthly commitment can turn into a big impact in the fight for a cure!
Our Founding Families
After the devastating loss of their sons, Chad and Michael, the Carr and Mosier families joined forces to defeat DIPG.
