Abbie’s Army

Abbie's Army

Abbie’s Army is a children’s DIPG brain tumour research charity, formed in loving memory of Abbie Mifsud. She was a beautiful daughter and brave little girl who lost her fight with an inoperable and incurable (DIPG) brain tumour on September 13th, 2011. She was just 6 years old.

DIPG or ‘Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma’ is the MOST FATAL form of childhood brain cancer which grows in the PONS area of the brainstem making surgery impossible. Currently there are NO effective treatments or a cure available. The average survival time from diagnosis is just 9 months.

Abbie passed away 5 months after her DIPG diagnosis. Can YOU imagine? The most fatal cancer with the least to be done?…
