A warning to listeners:  this contains emotionally sensitive material.  CCTR interviews Judith Jaimes Contreras, mom to Ruben who is suffering through the progression of DIPG, a deadly pediatric brain tumor. She candidly shares the reality that hundreds of other families in the US are facing right now: the challenge of acceptance of the terminal nature of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, and the agony of witnessing Ruben’s decline in utter helplessness, and the urgent need for increased research.

Ruben’s story unfolds on Facebook at Prayers for Ruben Contreras #DIPG Awareness.
