Evan's Crew: Towards a cure for DIPG
Copyright 2021 Evan's Crew - Towards a cure.
In August 2011, our family was camping in NH during one of our most memorable and enjoyable vacations. I recall that I found myself thinking - this is a really special time.
Things changed dramatically. Three months after that vacation we learned Evan was very sick. Not just sick, we found out there was not a thing that could be done for him medically to change the prognosis.
So now we ride 163 miles in the Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for DIPG research at Dana-Farber in Evan's name. We NEEDED to do something to make sense of it all, to find a way to change the outcome for future children. We have been riding since 2013 as Team Evan's Crew.
Our hope is that each year will bring new insight into this pediatric brain tumor and soon there will be a REAL option in treatment for other families.
When you need to do something to make sense of it all.... you ride a bike.
2022 Update: 10 Years
You helped us reach a tremendous milestone of fundraising - together raising over $1,488,000 in 10 year.
This year, the Pan-Mass Challenge raised $69,000,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Each and every one of you played a part in helping fulfill this goal. Check out their yearbook.
We would not have met this goal without your support of our mission to support DIPG Research!!
From Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
DIPG is an intractable disease that urgently requires novel treatment strategies. To expedite the translation of promising therapies to patient bedsides, our expert investigators have launched ambitious research initiatives that illuminate the biology of this difficult malignancy. Your longstanding support has been critical to shepherding their research from their earliest pilot studies to clinical trials. On behalf of our patients and their families, thank you for helping to make this important work possible.
