Meet Heidi, your Family Support Resource:

My youngest daughter battled DIPG for 53 months, earning her angel wings on 8/11/23, so I can relate and understand your fears and concerns. This is a very overwhelming time with so much information (or lack of information) being thrown at you. I am here to connect with you and provide resources and support that we, as a fighting family, were so desperately searching for at the beginning of our own journey with DIPG.

I want to help your family fight, provide you hope, and give you someone to lean on. No family should ever be told to “go home and make memories”. I made a promise to my daughter and you better believe that I will fulfill it. It is my mission to make sure that every family in the battle knows that there is more that can be done. There is HOPE!

Sign-up and I'll be in touch!

Join and collaborate with over 550 other DIPG families who understand what you are going through. We're here for you. Family never fights alone!
