Victoria Thomas' Fundraiser:

Defeat the Monster (aka, DIPG)

Victoria's Photo

THE STORY:

DIPG is one of the most devastating childhood cancers. This monster is an aggressive , inoperable, malignant brain tumor that strikes in the heart of childhood, typically affecting children between the ages of 5 to 10. This monster has been known for decades...even astronaut Neil Armstrong's daughter, Karen, succumbed to it in 1962. The survival rate today is the same as it was over 50 years ago...0%. "Why", you ask? Because childhood cancers are consistently underfunded by both the National Cancer Institute (our tax dollars) and by the large cancer organizations (e.g., American Cancer Society). Let's call it what it is....neglect. Presently, pediatric cancer research relies almost exclusively on donations, and that's where we come in. Somebody has to do it, and that somebody needs to be us. Thank you, The Thomas family (Toms River, NJ)
