I'm sorry to hear about your son. I know first hand how hard this is. Statistic show younger people stand a better chance of beating brain cancer. Our family is dealing with gbm and it is a though journey to be on.

My niece has been diagnosed with a DIPG one month ago. She's under radiotherapy.
You've talked about some children who were cured. Do you know one of them ? Can you tell me what kind of treatment they had ?
I hope all your children are doing well.
All my support to your families.

We lost Nick in august of 2011. I havent been on this site in all that time so I never saw your post until now. I just saw on The Cure Starts Now website (which specifically focuses funding on DIPG) that there is a new trial that has been approved for dipg that looks promising. It doesn't use the old ineffective chemo & radiation. The arsenic study that we took part in did seem to give us more time with Nick than other treatments seem to do. He lived for 13 months after diagnosis. I believe that the Budwig diet & the trial combined gave us a little more time with him. I pray that this new trial gives new hope to families with this awful diagnosis.I pray your fiancee is doing well.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
