 Our Commitment 

A Miracle for Ava is a Non-Profit organization created in honor of our beloved daughter, Ava Gioe, who was taken at the age of 5 after a 20 month battle with DIPG. Our commitment is to raise funds and awareness in hopes of combating brain tumors through research, and to support families with children facing a cancer diagnosis.

Meet the Monster

 

 DIPG is a type of brain tumor found in the pons, part of the brainstem on the lower back of the brain, near the top of the spinal cord. DIPG primarily affects children, with most diagnoses occurring between 5 and 7 years of age. DIPG makes up 10-15% of all brain tumors in children, with about 100-150 new diagnoses per year in the United States and about 300 per year in all of North America and Europe. Unlike many other pediatric cancers, there has been little progress in improving treatments and cure rates for DIPG over the last few decades. Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of children with DIPG survive two years from diagnosis.
