- from Bruce's mom
5 year old Bruce was diagnosed in November 2017 with diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG), an inoperable brainstem tumor with a 100% mortality rate and a medical overall survival of 9-12 months.
After undergoing a biopsy, VP shunt and revision, 30 rounds of radiation, and participating in a clinical trial, Bruce's tumor continued to progress. Bruce earned his angel wings August 4, 2018.
So young and taken too soon! Now free from pain to just be a kid.
