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.
