ABBIE'S ARMY - Awareness Video

February 2, 2018

ABOUT OUR CHOSEN CHARITY

 

'Abbie's Army' is a children's DIPG brain tumour research charity, founded late in 2012 in loving memory of Abbie.

Our mission is to :

Raise awareness and funding for DIPG research and help overturn this 'terminal' prognosis.

Provide a useful resource , practical advice and support for parents who receive this horrendous diagnosis for their child.

DIPG

There are over 120 different known types of brain cancer. DIPG or 'Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma' is the most fatal of all these brain cancer types. DIPG grows in the PONS area of the brainstem making surgery impossible. Currently there are no approved effective treatments or a CURE available. The average survival time from diagnosis is just 9 months.

Abbie was the most beautiful daughter and brave little girl who lost her fight with DIPG brain cancer when she was just 6 years old, she passed away only FIVE months after her DIPG diagnosis.

Can you imagine? The most fatal cancer with no treatment plan?...Abbie did not receive one drug following her diagnosis.

This hopeless situation for children with DIPG is UNACCEPTABLE! ...and cannot continue.

 

DIPG affects 40 children a year in the UK and with insufficient research funding from larger National charities and no direct Government funding, parent led charities and advocacy groups worldwide are contributing to furthering the research effort.

It may be too late for us and many others, but we can all commit to helping the DIPG families of the future. With first hand knowledge and experience of the devastation DIPG causes, we know any donation that can aid research and development of new treatments for these children is invaluable.

After decades of despair for families only the investment to find a cure will provide the hope needed for DIPG children of the future.
