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.  DIPG is a childhood cancer that most commonly strikes kids between ages 4 – 11, and it has a median survival of 9 months from diagnosis.  The Foundation seeks to make a difference and Defeat DIPG both by raising awareness of DIPG and by providing funding for research into effective treatments for DIPG.
