“UGA Student’s Family Chooses to Cease Treatment for Brain Tumor Diagnosis – Discover Their Brave Decision”

Family of UGA student diagnosed with brain tumor makes decision to stop treatment

A University of Georgia student who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor several months ago has made the decision to stop treatment.

The student, who has not been identified, was diagnosed with a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) in November 2019. DIPG is a particularly aggressive and rare form of brain cancer that affects children and young adults.

The student has been receiving treatment at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, but the family announced recently that they have decided to stop treatment.

In a statement, the family said, “After much prayer, discussion, and careful consideration, we have decided to stop treatment and savor every moment together as a family.”

The family expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of support they have received from the community and asked for privacy as they spend time with their loved one.

The decision to stop treatment has been a difficult one, but the family said they are at peace with it.

According to the American Cancer Society, DIPG is a rare type of aggressive brain tumor that accounts for 10-15% of all brain tumors in children. It is usually found in the middle of the brain stem, which controls many vital functions such as breathing, blood pressure, and heartbeat.

Currently, there is no known cure for DIPG, and treatment options are limited. Radiation therapy is the standard treatment for DIPG, but even with radiation, survival rates are low.

The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses and other costs associated with the student’s illness.
