Brooke Healey is a 4 year old girl from New Providence, NJ USA and has been diagnosed with a rare brain tumor called a DIPG.. (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) DIPG’s are considered the worst type of tumor in the worst possible location. The tumor resides in the Pons sack located at the top of the brain stem. The Pons is responsible for all vital functions and any attempt to operate and remove the tumor has been 100% fatal. Radiation will help to shrink the tumor temporarily, but will not stop it from growing.
