In late June, my 7 year-old son Johnny began having problems with balance. He has always been very active in sports including karate, and that is where we noticed something was wrong.
On July 17, 2018 he was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor found at the base of the brain. The prognosis for patients with DIPG is very poor, with most studies indicating a median survival of less than 1 year from diagnosis.
Johnny’s Fight is a website dedicated to my son Johnny’s fight against cancer.
