Fight for Owen, Find A Cure -from South Africa

Candice Hamman and Carl Jansen VanVuuren tell the story of their son Owen who was diagnosed in June 2020 with DIPG, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.  There are no treatment options besides the standard radiation and palliative care, and purchase of the experimental ONC201 from Germany.  Candice and Carl share from the heart what it’s like to feel helpless to save their son, yet determined to have faith that they’ll get that needed break, somehow.  Childhood Cancer Talk Radio is committed to helping connect this family with needed resources and information.  Sadly, promising trials are difficult to qualify for and not available in South Africa.  For more information about Owen and his family, visit
