What exactly is Dipg?
Adiffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is an aggressive brain tumour in children. It grows deep within the brain stem in an area that’s responsible for critical bodily functions such as breathing and movement, which tragically mean that it is inoperable.
DIPG is one of the rarest and most deadly childhood cancers – it’s thought to affect just 300 children worldwide each year.
