Parents Raise Awareness and Funds for JPA
Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma, JPA for short, is a brain tumor, the most common brain tumor in children. Roughly 600 children each year are diagnosed with JPA, but unfortunately the most common brain tumor does not have much funding to back research.
Parents were struggling to find resources and treatment for their children with JPA, but regardless of where they turned the research was not there. Corporate greed over profits did not warrant companies backing the research into finding a cure.
FightJPA.org, a parent organization of children with JPA have come together to help fund research. Starting with simple fundraising events in three years FightJPA raised over $6 million dollars in funds to help fight JPA.
You can help FightJPA by donating directly to their cause. All donations go towards funding research; no money is kept as overhead.
