WHAT IS GILOMATOSIS CEREBRI?

Gliomatosis cerebri is an aggressive brain cancer that can strike at any age, but is mostly diagnosed in children, adolescents, and young adults. Gliomatosis cerebri is not a “lump” like many tumors, but rather consists of cancerous threads that spread quickly and infiltrate deep into surrounding brain tissue. That makes the cancer inoperable as well as difficult if not impossible to treat with radiation. Gliomatosis cerebri is extremely rare, with fewer than 100 cases diagnosed in the United States each year.

The Weill Cornell Children’s Brain Tumor Project offers physicians the unprecedented ability to quickly identify a brain tumor’s “fingerprints” at the molecular level.The genomic data allows for personalized tumor therapy and affords new hope to patients.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Because Gliomatosis Cerebri is so rare, these inoperable tumors simply do not get the funding or attention that research scientists need to find a cure.
