My Story

On July 23, 2015 Anthony was given the awful diagnosis of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma or DIPG. This type of brain cancer is very underfunded and in over 50 years has had little advancements in treatment options available. The prognosis for DIPG is less than 1% survival rate. Anthony battled DIPG for 19 months, he passed away on March 9, 2017.  Throughout his year and a half battle, Anthony has shown us what it means to have strength, courage and hope. Please help by donating to St. Baldricks to help fund research for a cure to help kids like our Anthony.
