Jack’s Angels Foundation

by Abigail Gurierrez 0

Jack’s Angels is a foundation that wants to raise awareness, support and research for children that have Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (D.I.PG.).

D.I.PG. has been causing many deaths within the past few years. D.I.P.G. accounts for 80% of pediatric brain tumor deaths and about 12% in pediatric brain tumor incidence.

D.I.P.G. has affected around 300 children a year in the United States.

Jack’s Angels Foundation would like to see a D.I.P.G. in ¬†research at children’s hospitals. Many of these children diagnosed with D.I.P.G. are given two years to live, but some are only given about nine moths.

The children that are not getting the right medication are given two weeks to live.

Jack’s Angels Foundation remains committed to make a D.I.P.G. research to get everyone’s attention, especially all children hospitals.

The goal is to find a cure and save as many lives as possible.

This foundation will be having another event Tuesday, May 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. There will be art workshops for children, Jack’s Young Artist, exhibits and a raffle.

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is trying its best to give advanced medication to the patients and get all the advances in medicine.

Jack’s Angels Foundation is accepting any type of donation on its website, www.JacksAngels.org
