Mapping DIPG in Canada using Google Maps

Please fill in the form below to be added to our Canadian DIPG/Children’s Brain Cancer map .
There is currently limited information on D.I.P.G. (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) despite recent discoveries about its biology. Getting accurate statistics on the number of children suffering with this fatal cancer and the number of children that have died from D.I.P.G. has proven difficult. Health Canada does not have a specific diagnosis code for D.I.P.G. tumours. Instead it is included in the malignant neoplasm of the brain stem code (C71.7). The estimated number of annual DIPG cases across Canada is 30. Our hope is that by building a map of D.I.P.G. cases, the provincial and federal governments of Canada will see D.I.P.G. as a critical health issue for Canadian children and worthy of dedicated research funding. A map may also reveal D.I.P.G. clusters which could identify the etiology of D.I.P.G. and lead to better prevention and early detection strategies.
