Did you know that only 4% of federal funding for Cancer research goes towards pediatric cancers?
That means for every dollar of federal funding, only 4 cents goes toward pediatrics. 4 pennies, that is it! No wonder not much is being done to cure DIPG. It is thought that DIPG holds the key to all other cancers.... If a breakthrough could be made into my cancer, chances are many other cancers could be CURED.
DIPG is only found in children, therefore it is a pediatric cancer and its research only gets 4%.
