Salinans will gather on Friday to support the fight against childhood brain tumors – by participating in the Salina Scramble Golf Tournament to Defeat DIPG.
KSAL Morning News listeners learned more about the disease that strikes almost exclusively among children between the ages of six and ten.
“Right now there’s no cure, there’s no treatment, said Mark Mosier, on Monday.
“The survival rate is zero percent.”
Mosier’s son Michael was diagnosed with DIPG his first week of kindergarten in 2015 and died after an eight and half month battle.
Mark, a graduate of Salina South High School lives with his wife Jenny in Washington DC, and will be returning to Salina for Friday’s tournament.
“We feel like it’s really time to put a focus on this and move the needle and start doing better for the kids who are facing this really devastating disease,” Jenny said.
Entry for the tournament is $75 per person and tees off at 1pm at Salina Municipal Golf Tournament. Contact Kent Lambert at 785-819-6023 to enter or learn more at defeatdipg.org/salinascramble
The Mosiers will also be staying to lend a hand to the Love Chloe Foundation’s Race Against the Odds event on Saturday.
