WHO WE ARE
We operate in memory of a vibrant 5-year-old boy named Ryan Arnold, who in 2012 lost his battle with an inoperable, incurable, pediatric brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
We formed as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization to raise awareness and promote medical research for this 100% fatal cancer.
WHAT WE DO
WHY WE DO IT
Every year, 300 children between the ages of 3 and 11 are diagnosed with DIPG and are given 9-to-18 months to live. Childhood brain cancer research is significantly underfunded and the public remains unaware of the gravity of this disease. The money we raise goes directly to DIPG researchers.
