Thanks to the hard work of Jack’s Angels Foundation, Congressman Knight introduced House Res. 586 – the first legislation dedicated exclusively to DIPG awareness, which would establish the fourth week of May as a National DIPG Awareness Week. But House Res. 586 needs to first pass through the Committee on Energy and Commerce before passage by the full House of Representatives. And we need to pass House Res. 586 in time to coincide with May’s Brain Tumor Awareness Month.
