Defeat DIPG

Fighting for a cure for childhood brain tumors

Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation is committed to finding a cure for brainstem tumors known as diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG).  Nearly every day one child in the United States is diagnosed with DIPG and another child dies from it.   The Foundation seeks to make a difference and Defeat DIPG both by funding research into effective treatments for DIPG and raising awarness of this childhood cancer.  

DIPG is a brainstem tumor that almost exclusively impacts children.  Approximately 200 – 400 children in the United States are diagnosed with DIPG each year, typically between ages 5 – 10.  DIPG is the leading cause of death from pediatric brain tumors, with a near 0% survival.  The median survival from diagnosis is 9 months, with only 10% of children surviving for 2 years.  Though survival rates for most childhood cancers have improved drastically in the past few decades, DIPG has the same dismal prognosis. 

Finally, due to developments in medical technology and increased access to tumor tissue, medical researchers are optimistic that progress will be made.  We must provide the resources.  Defeat DIPG Foundation funds critical research to find treatments and a cure for DIPG.  The entire amount spent annually on DIPG research – almost all of which comes from foundations like ours – is $3 – 5 million, or less than 0.0005% of the total funding for cancer research.  Every dollar matters to help these kids.
