Young Mom Of Four Finds Help At Cancer Society After Diagnosis

The Washington Post: Live Like Lola: A Young Girl Confronts Deadly Brain Cancer With Resolve

It was several months after learning she had a rare brain tumor — and several more before she would turn 13 — when Lola Muñoz drove from Upstate New York to Tennessee with her mother. The choice had been Lola’s: to enter a clinical trial testing whether two chemotherapy drugs might be safe for patients with DIPG. Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas, striking in childhood at the base of the brain, are especially aggressive, difficult to treat and deadly. Lola opted to take part in the trial at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis with a singular hope. “I’d rather help find something for the other kids that will get DIPG than to not help at all,” she explained.
