DIPG Family Support

The road to a DIPG cure is dependent upon rallying together to cause change. Every family affected by this horrible disease eventually chooses what role, if any, they want to play in the effort to effect change so that future families affected by DIPG can have a chance for an alternate outcome.

The ChadTough Foundation welcomes the opportunity to work with fellow DIPG families to inspire and fund game-changing research to discover effective treatments for pediatric brain cancer, with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

There are multiple ways to help:

  • Become an official ChadTough Family Partner (see below)
  • Share your story (be interviewed and allow The ChadTough Foundation to write & share your story)
  • Participate in a ChadTough event (RunTough for ChadTough, Champions for Change Gala, Endurance Program.)
  • Organize a group Virtual Run as part of RunTough for ChadTough
  • Volunteer for an event
  • Host your own fundraiser
