|Description:||URGENTLY NEEDED RESEARCH FUNDED BY JACK’S ANGELS FOUNDATION IN SANTA CLARITA May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month! Jack’s Angels Foundation will be hosting its first fundraising event, “Art for Jack, Celebrating Children’s Art” on Saturday, May 11th2013, from 1-7pm, at the Agua Dulce Women’s Club,33201 Agua Dulce Cyn.Rd, Santa Clarita, CA 91390. One hundred percent of their net proceeds will fund research in pediatric neuro-oncology at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. James-William “Jack” Demeter, born 8-30-08, was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma(DIPG), a deadly pediatric brainstem tumor for which there is currently no known cure or cause. Little improvement has been made in 30 years with this tumor, having a long-term survival rate of less than 1%. Like Jack, approximately 2-300 children in the US will receive a diagnosis of DIPG this year, dealing a heavy blow to each of their families. The Foundation is dedicated to funding DIPG research, and to raising awareness for this urgency by promoting the arts and education for children locally. Jack survived 9 months past his diagnosis date, taking his last breaths on July 30th, 2012 in his parents’ arms at home. For more information, visit: www.jacksangels.org, or call 661-977-3125.|
