National DIPG Awareness Resolution
H.Res.114 designates May 17 as National DIPG Awareness Day, to raise the profile of this devastatingly terminal childhood brain tumor. Nothing has changed for DIPG in the last 40 years in standard treatment nor in its terminal prognosis. DIPG is responsible for most of the pediatric brain tumor deaths each year, the leading cause of death in kids with cancer. This resolution is an important first step in securing the support, attention, and resources needed to develop better treatment options and find a cure.

The DIPG Awareness Resolution is a simple House Resolution, requiring only a House vote to pass. It is not a law. It is apolitical with no funds allocated. What it does: It shines a national spotlight on an issue of human suffering, which has remained in obscurity for decades.
