What is the DIPG Collaborative?
The DIPG Collaborative is a collection of foundations with the shared mission of efficiently funding and inspiring Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma cancer research with the belief that through a cure for DIPG significant advances in other cancer research will be made.

Scott and Andi on Y102 – Daily Do Good: Aidan’s Avengers helps local child fighting brain cancer
Dylan loves his fun box of goodies from Aidan’s Avengers
While funding Pediatric Brain Cancer Research is our top priority as an organization, we’ve also made it part of our mission to help local families that are battling this devastating disease.
Recently, we had the opportunity to bring a smile to 5-year old Dylan of Pottstown, who is battling DIPG. On behalf of Aidan’s Avengers , we put together a fun box of goodies that included some of Dylan’s favorite toys, a Minion blanket that was made special by Caitlin (Aidan’s sister), along with some Cards of Encouragement made by Caitlin’s 5th grade classmates at Amity Elementary Center. We were also able to provide Dylan’s parents with a check to assist with the financial burden that goes along with this battle.
Thank you to all of Aidan’s Avengers for helping us to make this possible – to bring a smile to this cutie and some peace of mind to his parents. Most importantly, we ask that you all keep Dylan and his family in your daily thoughts and prayers.
