A Cure for DIPG

There is currently no cure for DIPG or DMG; however, The Cure Starts Now and the DIPG/DMG Collaborative are the biggest funders of DIPG research and are vested in finding the cure to DIPG/DMG. With over $21 million of DIPG/DMG specific research collectively funded, these organizations are laser focused and fueled by their own children's battles with DIPG/DMG and brain cancer.

The Homerun Strategy

The Cure Starts Now and the DIPG/DMG Collaborative both believe that in order to find a cure for all cancer you need to focus on DIPG/DMG – one of the rarest and most aggressive cancers. To combat DIPG/DMG they have identified four main concentrations at the core of their research funding:

  1. Informational/Basic: The collection of data to understand how DIPG develops
  2. Translational: Early stage research (mouse modeling, test tube experiments, etc.)
  3. Clinical: The research that treats patients currently diagnosed with DIPG
  4. Delivery: The development of strategies to get treatment to the tumor cells
