My heart is filled with sadness today as it was four years ago that Cristian lost his hard-fought battle with DIPG. I remember that day so well. I remember watching Cristian suffer horribly as his fever and his heart rate got so high that his heart finally gave out.

oday marks six years since I received the worst news any parent can hear. It was January 22, 2007 when doctors reviewed Cristian’s MRI and determined that he not only had a brain tumor but a DIPG brain tumor. I could barely believe what I was hearing as they told me my son could possibly live another nine months, if they were being optimistic.
