Rubio-Led Resolution to Raise Awareness of Pediatric Cancers Passes Senate

Jun 2, 2023 | Press Releases

Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death among children in our nation. Unfortunately, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is the leading cause of pediatric brain cancer deaths in this age group. The median amount of time that a child survives their diagnosis is 11 months and there has been little to no change in prognosis for children diagnosed in the past 50 years.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) led a bipartisan resolution designating May 17, 2023 as “DIPG Pediatric Brain Cancer Awareness Day” to raise awareness of, and encourage research on DIPG tumors and pediatric cancer. 

  • “The Senate encourages all individuals in the United States to become more informed about diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma tumors, pediatric brain cancer in general, and challenges related to research on pediatric cancer and ways to advance that research.”

Joining Rubio were Senators Jack Reed (D-RI), Mike Braun (R-IN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Bob Casey (D-PA), Deb Fischer (R-NE), and Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS).
