Santa Clarita resident Janet Demeter visited Boston, Mass., to promote awareness about Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, or DIPG.

Completing an awareness run, Demeter talked to people about the loss of her son to DIPG and her SCV nonprofit Jack’s Angels Foundation, named in his honor.

Each year, 80 percent of pediatric brain tumor deaths are caused by DIPG, and brain tumors are the No. 1 cause of cancer-related deaths in children, she said.

However, Demeter says DIPG is one of the least-funded areas of cancer research.
