About SWISS to cure DIPG
The non-profit foundation was founded in 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland. The "SWISS to cure DIPG" foundation was created after we experienced firsthand the devastating effect of facing this "dead-sentence" diagnosis. We researched and spoke with the globally scattered experts around the world and we choose to fight alongside them: there is hope and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Join us so we can supercharge the speed of improving the odds for our beloved children and find a cure.
It is to serve children and families, diagnosed with the deadliest cancer among children and adolescents, as well as the wider DIPG / DMG* medical community.
Our organization was born out of a commitment to stop the unimaginable suffering caused by this cancer. We have set out to aid those who need it most and support those who have dedicated their lives and careers to help and ultimately cure DIPG / DMG. "SWISS to cure DIPG" is here to push the boundaries and we know that change is possible when we put our hearts, minds and resources into it.
Our initial focus is on expanding the availability, expertise and options for treatments in Europe, so that families do not have to struggle with how to fund and/or relocate to the US, where the availability of clinical trials and research is considerably more advanced. The goal is to have those options remain readily available and affordable, thus available for all children around the globe.
