We partner with others who share our passion because we believe working together and sharing knowledge is the fastest path to a cure. The ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation offers three partnership options for those who want to join forces with us and amplify our efforts: Family Partners, Research Partners, Navigator Partners.
We are collaborative.
Our Family Partner program welcomes the help of families who want to honor their children’s fight by advancing our shared mission. Families can actively fundraise, without setting up and managing their own 501c3. Interested families should please contact our partnership team.
Our Research Partner Program welcomes the help of organizations, primarily other DIPG or DMG foundations, interested in funding the promising research projects that have been vetted by our renowned Scientific Advisory Council. Interested organizations should please contact our partnership team.
Our Navigator Partner program welcomes the help of organizations, primarily other DIPG or DMG foundations, interested in helping fund our innovative My DIPG Navigator program so it remains free for families in need. Interested organizations should please contact our partnership team.
In 2015, two families endured the unimaginable loss of their sons, Chad Carr, age 5, and Michael Mosier, age 6, to DIPG. Both families channeled that heartache into finding a cure for DIPG. In 2020, the Carrs and Mosiers joined forces to form the ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation, becoming the leading force to defeat childhood brain cancer.
