From Denver Colorado we bring to you Jill and Cam Morin, who established in their son Luke’s honor a fund for DIPG Research at Children’s Hospital Colorado raising over $230,000 at 22% of their goal. They are gearing up for the Goddard Cares Fall Fest 5k in honor of Luke Morin; sadly, Luke passed away in 2018 just 17 days past diagnosis, of the deadly DIPG, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.
Dr. Rajeev Vibhakar, at Children’s Hospital Colorado works along with Dr. Adam Green and others on the cutting edge of cancer research with a laboratory devoted to finding solutions for DIPG. Their work is funded mostly by parent-led foundations.
“Philanthropy is the foundation for all the research that we do here; without donors, our work simply wouldn’t be possible. With continued support, I know we can change the outcomes for these kids.”
