April 15, 2016

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped Bridget achieve the goal of getting a donation from all 50 states!  We are so fortunate  See more

THE STORY:

Last year, my best friend, Michael, died from a rare tumor in his brain stem called DIPG.  He was six years old.  His parents started the Defeat DIPG Foundation. 

I am trying to get donations from all 50 states by April 17th to win "Michael's Map Challenge" to raise money to fight this disease. Whenever I get a donation from a new state I color it in on my map.

A week after his 6th birthday, Michael was diagnosed with a tumor in his brain stem called a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).  There is still no effective treatment and no chance of survival.  More than 90 percent of children diagnosed with DIPG will die within 2 years of diagnosis, and most children will live only 9 months. Despite a brave battle Michael passed away eight months after his diagnosis.   

I hope you will consider donating, even if a donation has already been made from your state, to help change the outcome for children diagnosed with DIPG.  

-Bridget
