Our Programs

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.

If you have questions about any of our programs, please reach out to us at info@marcjr.org. We will be happy to speak to you.
