About Us

Advocate With Us

The DIPG Advocacy Group is a coalition of childhood cancer organizations and individual childhood cancer advocates dedicated to the success of the DIPG Awareness Resolution in US Congress. It is our belief and hope that by raising awareness to the failure of our medical research investment culture in accommodating the urgent, unmet needs of America’s children, the success of all childhood cancer legislation and policy will be more expedient and met with less resistance.  Awareness is the first step toward greater research funding for the deadliest and most rapacious killer of our children.  Until the general public is more fully aware of the fact that our medical industrial complex marginalizes rather than accommodates the urgent needs of children with cancer, progress will continue to be inadequate to make a difference in their lives.
