4 year old Scotty was diagnosed with DIPG brain cancer on November 20, 2018. Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) are highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors found at the base of the brain. They are glial tumors, meaning they arise from the brain's glial tissue — tissue made up of cells that help support and protect the brain's neurons. It is said to be incurable. This cancer is also said to be rare, but more and more children are dying from it. Mom is focusing on providing the best chance for Scotty to have a normal, carefree childhood for as long as he could hold on.
UPDATE: On June 11, 2019 Scotty became free from this dreadful disease.
