The Connor Man Defeat DIPG Foundation was established in 2016 to raise awareness and funds for research to find a cure for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma and to honor our hero, Connor Man.
It all started with a little girl named Elena Desserich. At five years old she was the victim of a rare form of brain cancer (DIPG). The Cure Starts Now fights for the cure for other children with brainstem glioma and cancer patients everywhere.
The cure for cancer is just as important as it is elusive. We can cure cancer one-by-one or we can focus on THE cure which we believe will come from a cure for pediatric brain cancers. The fight begins today and the cure starts now.
Mark and Jenny Mosier created Defeat DIPG Foundation in honor of their 6-year-old son, Michael William Mosier, who bravely battled against DIPG for 8.5 months before passing away on May 17, 2015. When the Mosier family learned of Michael’s diagnosis, it was the first time they heard of “DIPG.” Suddenly, they — like thousands of other families — were forced to face the unimaginable news that their previously healthy, vibrant, energetic little boy would likely have less than a year to live. They are determined to change that outcome for other families.
It all started with one front yard lemonade stand.
When she was just four-years-old, Alex held her first childhood cancer fundraiser in her front yard and raised over $2,000. By the time of her death in 2004, Alex raised $1 million and inspired a legacy of hope and cures for childhood cancer.
Alex’s family — including brothers Patrick, Eddie and Joey — and supporters around the world are committed to continuing her inspiring legacy through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
