DIPG has the poorest diagnosis of all brain tumors. Each year, an average of 300 children in the U.S are diagnosed with this type of tumor.
DIPG is almost a 100% death sentence at time of diagnosis. Median survival from the time of diagnosis is 6-9 months. Fewer than 1% will survive past 18 months.
