"YES. Please. I don't know that anyone deserves to die this way, and to see their child die. My son, Odin, is almost 2 and a half and was diagnosed with DIPG on October 3 of this year. We are currently undergoing radiation treatment and are part…"

Choosing to cure DIPG as the shared top priority in oncology

JFK could send us to the moon and back because we had a shared top priority. NASA did other things too but everyone knew what was most important was getting the highest ground by walking on the moon. Not long after Nixon started the war on cancer. We are still a long way from getting the number of cancer deaths to under 400,000 a year even though this was a goal set back in 1971.

Please list your CarePage/Caring Bridge/blog site, your organization, or your reason for being here?
Trying to help cure childhood cancers. Have read far too many clinical trial results where no child responded to treatment.
Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
I am a toxicologist who works on trying to increase the number of tumors donated for research after death. DIPG is top of my list but I think this is something that should be made available for any family losing a child to cancer. I donated my mom's tumors to research after she died. Since then I have become sort of an expert on the existing programs. We can cure what we study, but we can only study what we collect.
