450 children are diagnosed with a brain tumour in the UK every year, notoriously difficult to treat & cure they claim more lives than ANY OTHER cancer accounting for almost a third of all childhood cancer deaths. 

Around 40-45 (10% ) of all the childhood brain tumours diagnosed are DIPG - Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma the worst of all paediatric tumours. Currently DIPG is completely untreatable, all chemotherapies are ineffective and surgery is impossible due to its infiltrative location in the brainstem where all vital life function is maintained.

The prognosis for DIPG children has remained unchanged for decades.This is universally fatal with a survival rate close to 0%, the median survival remains at just 9 months. Abbie passed away just 5 months after her DIPG diagnosis... EVERY 9 days a UK family receives this devastating diagnosis for their child. They are told there is NO hope and NO cure.

Abbies Army are committed to funding the fight and raising awareness for DIPG cure. We are now proud to be supporting leading researchers here at the Institute of Cancer Research and in the US at Stanford University.  Please make a difference and join us on the journey for DIPG cure.
