Building Awareness Today For Tomorrow’s Cure

Families and organizations affected by DIPG have worked tirelessly to raise awareness of the disease and advocate for increased research funding. Their efforts aim to improve the outlook for children diagnosed with DIPG in the future.


Our Mission

The mission of The Marc Jr Foundation is

  • To fund research toward finding a cure for DIPG.
  • To offer educational and financial assistance to families facing a DIPG.
  • To build awareness today for tomorrow’s cure.

We are a 100%-based volunteer organization that helps families and hospitals around the country and because of the unique services offered by the Marc Jr Foundation and our commitment to the DIPG community, our services are becoming more in demand each day. We are hoping, with your help, to continue these services for families who so desperately need them.

Our Vision

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) presents a great challenge and it is a deadliest form of childhood brain cancer. We believe that with investing in clinical trials and research today, a cure will come tomorrow. The Marc Jr Foundation is committed to funding this work.
