TJ’s Medical Fund

This 8year old Rooker fan is one tuff l’il superhero – we call him TJ…

TJ has just been diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPG).

DIPG is a brain tumor found in a part of the brain stem called the pons. The pons controls essential bodily functions such as heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, eye movement, eyesight, and balance. Approximately 200-400 children in the United States between the ages of 4 and 11 are diagnosed with DIPG each year.

Doctors use radiation to help shrink the tumor but it almost always comes back even more aggressively. It is a horribly devastating disease. I am like most people in that if it does not affect me personally I don’t know about it, until it’s at my front door. Needless to say I am learning all about DIPG now, because it is not only at my front door, it has entered my heart… this little superhero is my niece’s son. The tumor has diffused or spread into his brain stem and there is no cure right now.

I will be helping as much as humanly possible. But needless to say, every little bit counts.

TJ’s friends and family have set up a fundraising campaign for TJ’s Medical Fund. Even if you can’t donate, please share to help spread awareness:
