The Giving Tuesday challenge is ON. 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.
For the first time, we are facing a shortfall in our ability to fund qualified research. We have succeeded in inspiring more researchers to focus on DIPG, resulting in a 50% increase in research grant applications this past year. In our recent review of fellowship grant applications, our world-renowned Scientific Advisory Council identified 10 projects that met the rigorous standard we apply for projects to be funded. This was 3 more than we had budgeted.
To ensure we can fund ALL of this promising research, while also continuing to offer help through My DIPG Navigator, we need your support to close the funding gap, which requires us to raise an additional $250,000 per year for the next 3 years (for a total of $750,000).
