Revolutionary Treatment for deadliest child cancer
Why we need your help.
A child who is diagnosed with a DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) brain tumour has only a few months to live. It’s a race against time to find a cure to stop this deadly condition.
No child in the world has survived this. With Professor Steven Gill and his team we hope that we will never have to say that again.
Figure above Unique CED catheter system comprises implantable microcatheters and a skull anchored port which allows drugs to be repeatedly administered without the need for further surgery.
We know, with the help of brave Daisy Brooks, diagnosed with DIPG aged 6, that the system of delivering drugs directly into the tumour works.
(read more of Daisy’s story at www.fundingneuro.com).
We know David’s* tumour has reduced by 90% after just 3 rounds of infusions.
All of these treatments have been carried out experimentally and have shown signs that we are closer than ever before to finding a cure.
We know that there are a combination of drugs in the laboratory that if infused via the system could result in a cure!
We know that there are a number of children needing this treatment for any chance of survival, and that the only way this can be done is through a clinical trial.
Please help Funding Neuro to fund this trial and give these children that chance.
