Evan's Crew: Towards a cure
In memory of our son Evan who lost his battle to Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma on November 13, 2012 when he was just 11 years old.
We are doing what we can to support efforts to find a cure for DIPG; this rare, always fatal and under-funded pediatric brain tumor. Evan participated in two clinical trials during his exactly one year battle. Currenlty, clinical trials are the ONLY hope for this devastating diagnosis.
We've established the Evan T. Mandeville DIPG Research Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute where he was treated.
100% of all donations made through the Pan-Mass Challenge go directly to Evan's research fund.
