Devin Suau is six-years-old, and after falling off his snowboard in January and seeing a doctor about a possible concussion, he was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). DIPG is a very rare type of pediatric cancer that is aggressive and unforgiving. The tumor is located in Devin’s brain stem. Tragically, because of its location, the tumor is inoperable and has no known cure. Devin’s family was told he likely has somewhere between 8 months to 2 years to live.
Devin’s family was completely blindsided and devastated by this news and shattered that there is no cure. Devin is the youngest of 4 boys, he loves to play soccer, lacrosse and snowboard and looks up to his brothers a great deal. He may be the youngest in his family but he has the biggest personality, making anyone who knows him laugh and fall in love. His parents, James and Christine, chose to believe that Devin will beat the odds and be a miracle that the DIPG community needs. Someone has to be first.
With this Group, we hope to add yet another resource and a centralized voice for people to read about Devin and his family. That said, it is also very important to Devin’s family to raise awareness about DIPG. This disease, because of its rarity, gets very little to zero funding, research, or backing from the medical community. That has to change!
Join the Suau's fight. Join Devin's fight. And be part of the greatest comeback story ever told!
