Help defeat DIPG
DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) affects children between the ages of 5 and 9.
The median survival time with DIPG is under 12 months. Surgery to attempt to remove this tumour is not possible or advisable. Aggressive surgery would cause severe damage throughout the brainstem and cause a quicker death. There is the horrible truth behind DIPG. The real tragedy is the small lives it takes in a rapid period of time. It leaves behind devastated parents who can’t understand why this has happened to their little babies.
