Oliver Young Palmer
Date of Birth: July 11, 2001
Date of Diagnosis: December 23, 2009
Earned His Wings: February 16, 2012

Oliver was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) or Pediatric Brainstem Cancer on the 23rd of December 2009 at the age of 8 years old. It is a rare, aggressive type of brain cancer and is inoperable. He was given 9 – 12 months to live following diagnosis, but bravely fought his disease for over 2 years, becoming a ‘long term survivor’ of this type of brain tumor. He passed away peacefully in the early morning of February 16, 2012. Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we adjust to life without his sweet smiling face…
