Aubreigh’s Army Foundation 328 is committed to providing funding to help find a Cure for DIPG. DIPG primarily affects children, with most diagnoses occurring between 5 and 7 years of age. DIPG makes up 10 -15% of all brain tumors in children, with about 150 -300 new diagnoses per year in the United States. Unlike many other pediatric cancers, there has been little progress in improving treatments and cure rates for DIPG over the last few decades.
