About Us

Advocate With Us

DIPG Advocacy Group is a volunteer association of childhood cancer organizations and individual childhood cancer advocates dedicated to the success of the DIPG Awareness Resolution in Congress and advancing all childhood cancer support legislation and policy.  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.
