Help Find a Cure – Donate Your Child’s Autopsy Tissue
A child’s end of life is a tragedy, but by donating your child’s autopsy tissue, you can contribute to childhood brain cancer research and help find better treatments for other children.
Autopsy tissue is an invaluable resource that can come only from us, parents whose children have terminal brain cancer.
Please read the Nature news feature story Tissue Bank Shortage: Brain Child that explains the importance of tissue donation for finding cures.
Here is the study on collection of autopsy tissue from children with DIPG.
If you are considering an autopsy donation and would like to talk to a family who has walked this path before you, Gift from a Child, our partner program of the Swifty Foundation, can match you with a parent or caregiver of a family whose child has donated. This one-on-one relationship gives you an opportunity to ask personal questions as you consider the decision to donate, and it can offer support and empathy at a terribly difficult time in your family’s life.
