My daughter was diagnosed with a DIPG 1-26-2012 at the age of 21. I am just looking for people that may be going through the same thing...We were told that is very rare for someone of her age.

I was diagnosed at 25 with a pontine glioma with some diffuse enlargement. This was back in 2008. It is indeed rare at this age. From chemo and radiation to trials to side effects, have been through a lot with this over the past nearly 4 years (hit this mark next week), and would be very happy to share my experience. There are also some decent resources specifically for young adults that she might find helpful, I know I have.
All the best to you both.

Hi there.  Hope your daughter is doing well.  Has she had her MRI done yet to check her progress after radiation?  Praying its great news!
