DIPG, or diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma are highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors found at the base of the brain. They are glial tumors, meaning they arise from the brain’s glial tissue—tissue made up of cells that help support and protect the brain’s neurons. These tumors are found in an area of the brainstem (the lowest, stem-like part of the brain) called the pons, which controls many of the body’s most vital functions such as breathing, blood pressure, and heart rate.
DIPG makes up 10-15% of all brain tumours in children, with about 30 new diagnosis per year in Canada and 200-300 in the United States.
Life expectancy remains at 9-12 months, with only a few children living past 2 years.
It typically affects children aged 5-10 years.
DIPG leaves kids mentally intact. However, it takes away their essential bodily functions such as vision, swallowing, walking and breathing.
There is no cure for this tumour! Not only is there no cure, but treatment is very limited. There is not enough research and funding for children with cancer. Federally, only 4% is given to childhood cancer research, with 1% of that 4% going to brain cancers.
