Welcome to DIPG Ireland.
We started this site in January 2018 after receiving the devastating news that our then 3 1/2 year old son Oscar had an inoperable brain tumour. We were told it was rare type of cancer (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), with only a handful of cases in Ireland each year. With so few cases, we struggled to find resources online specifically for Irish families. Our goal is to increase awareness of DIPG while helping support families like ours who find themselves facing into the darkness of its diagnosis.
Please follow us on our social media pages, spread the word, and help us find a cure for this heartbreaking disease.
