Family Grant Program

We work closely with social workers at the Children’s Hospitals around the country, identifying families in need of financial services. The Marc Jr Foundation gifts families $500 to help reduce the financial stress that comes with a diagnosis. This money is to be used at your discretion, without stipulations or reimbursement forms. This money can be used for copays, travel expenses, alternative treatments, prescriptions, etc. It may also be used for a family night out – the zoo, a museum, movie, amusement park, etc. Your child’s health comes first, and our goal is to help.

DIPG Registry

The International Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) Registry is a collaborative effort by physicians and researchers from North America, Europe, and Australia to centralize and standardize the collection of clinical data and tumor samples from DIPG patients. The goal of this effort is to support innovative research and ultimately find a cure for DIPG.  Please register.
