There are 3 Organizations that had helped Ethan Paladino and his family through their stressful journey. We dedicate this page to thank all 3 organizations.
Ethan’s type of brain cancer, DIPG, is rare, affects only children, has had very little research funding for the past 50 years, and is always fatal. We support the Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation because of the work they are doing to support awareness and funding for DIPG research
Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation
Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation is committed to finding a cure for brainstem tumors known as diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG). Nearly every day one child in the United States is diagnosed with DIPG and another child dies from it. The Foundation seeks to make a difference and Defeat DIPG both by raising awareness of DIPG and by providing funding for research into effective treatments for DIPG.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Ethan received treatment from St. Jude. He also participated in a number of voluntary studies that help other people through the research they are doing. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Keeping families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
While at St. Jude Ethan stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis. It is truly a haven in a storm for families with sick children. Imagine how expensive it would be to live in a hotel for months at a time.
