Help Fight DIPG Today

Home: Welcome

Pediatrics Deadliest Brain Tumor

"A rare, fast-growing tumor that forms in cells called glial cells in a part of the brain stem called the pons. DIPGs tend to spread to nearby tissue and other parts of the brain stem, are hard to treat, and have a poor prognosis (outcome). They usually occur in children. Also called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma."

Each year, two Black, female students planning to pursue a college degree will be selected and will receive a $1,000 stipend towards any collegiate expenses. 
The first recipients will be selected in Spring 2023, in honor of Abby's former expected graduation date.
