Help Make Childhood Cancer Awareness History!
In these last few months of 2022, we have the opportunity to make important history for childhood cancer awareness.  The DIPG Awareness Resolution, H. Res. 404, has passed the threshold of a House Majority officially signed on in support, paving the way for House leadership to schedule a vote.  If passed, it would make history as one of only two “commemorative” resolutions to pass the House (the other being for Patriot’s Day) and the only childhood cancer resolution to achieve over 200 signatures. It would also set a precedent of national acknowledgement of the urgent, unmet medical needs of children with cancer. 

Please ask your Representative to sign H. Res. 404, a bipartisan resolution with the aim to accelerate our progress into cures for childhood cancers. If no one knows, no one can care to help, and nothing changes quickly enough.

There has been no change in the standard treatment protocol for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), nor its prognosis, since Neil Armstrong’s daughter died of it in 1962. No parent should hear there are no solutions for their child. Join us in standing up for these kids and families by asking Congress to make childhood cancer a national priority.
