Ariella - help us beat DIPG

Personal message

Ariella is a spunky and vivacious 5year old who loves singing, dancing and Havaianas.  A day after Ariella's 5th birthday she was admitted into hospital and our worst nightmare came true when our angel was diagnosed with DIPG.

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma is a rare and highly aggressive brain tumour found in an area of the brainstem which controls many of the body’s most vital functions such as breathing and heart rate.

Unfortunately there is currently no known cure, and most children only survive for approximately 9months after diagnosis, and only 10% survive for longer than 2years. The symptoms of DIPG develop very rapidly, these include; problems controlling eye movements, speech, swallowing, walking and coordination.

Since her diagnosis there has already been an increase in symptoms, but no matter what she’s been through with multiple doctors’ appointments, scans and "shots" as she calls them, as well as current radiation, she has lost none of her shine. Her ability to light up a room with her joy, humour and intellect is indescribable, finding her way into the hearts of all.

We are needing to raise funds for her treatment, any medical shortfall and after hospital expenses. As her parents have been mostly unable to work since her diagnosis finances are becoming a significant concern. We are also currently researching clinical trials overseas which may be our only hope at finding a cure or offering Ariella a better quality of life. These trials and other costs involved can be exorbitant, sometimes totalling $500,000.00 or more. We need support to fund her treatment but also to raise awareness in the hopes of 1day finding a cure for these beautiful little warriors.
