WHAT IS DIPG?

Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) are highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors found in an area of the brainstem (the lowest, stem-like part of the brain) called the pons, which controls many of the body’s most vital functions such as breathing, blood pressure, swallowing, and heart rate.

DIPG

Pediatric cancer research receives only a fraction of the money that adult cancer research gets, and it’s decreasing. In 2013, the NCI (National Cancer Institute) invested $185.1 million from a $4.79 billion budget in pediatric cancer research, the lowest amount since 2009.
