Julia Barbara Foundation

FIGHTING TO CURE DIPG - BRAIN STEM TUMORS   

           

The Julia Barbara Foundation is fighting to cure DIPG (brain stem tumors) so that in the future DIPG children will not lose their smiles and families will no longer watch their children die a horrible death. DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) normally occurs in children, is non hereditary, fast growing and currently incurable. Further, brain tumors are now the leading cause of cancer related deaths in children ages 1-19.  Please join our fight to save children!  


On November 23, 2016, Julia Barbara Foundation donated $15,000.00 to the DIPG Collaborative for DIPG research. On December 29, 2017, we donated $10,000.00 for DIPG research.  http://www.dipg.org/
