Raise awareness and fund research into Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG)

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) affects 30-40 children (sometimes adults too) in the UK each year. Median survival is just 9 months. Radiotherapy, which is palliative, has been the only treatment for decades. More must be done to fund research into this disease.

May 17th has been recognised in other countries as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) Awareness Day. The UK Government and Parliament should consider using this day to raise awareness of DIPG.
