TGEN LIQUID BIOPSY STUDY SEEKS TO IMPROVE MONITORING FOR DIPG

November 20, 2018

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a rare childhood brain cancer that develops deep within the brain stem and penetrates into healthy brain tissue, rendering surgical removal impossible. To monitor this disease, a biopsy using a thin needle inserted through a tiny hole drilled in the skull is technically possible, but risky, and if successful would only capture a one-time snapshot of the tumor.

The fund topped its Phase I goal with the recent donation of $90,000 from the Tyler Hallsey Foundation, named for a 15-year-old Anthem boy who also passed away from DIPG in 2014, following a valiant 17-month battle against his disease.

January 12, 2018

“Every year in the winter, we put down a lot of rock,” says David, which gave him an idea. A few years ago, David’s friend Tyler Hallsey passed away from diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor. David, who’s close with the Hallsey family and who was Tyler’s younger brother’s scoutmaster until recently, came up with a way he could help raise money for a cure.
