On January 4, 2021, 6 year-old Jacob Senediak of Pittsburgh, PA died due to complications from his fight with DIPG, a deadly childhood brain cancer which spares mercilessly few of its victims. His father, Mark Senediak, joins us on Childhood Cancer Talk Radio to begin a discussion about efforts his family and others connected with "Jacob's Fight," the fledgling foundation developing through this mission, are undertaking to build a one-of-a-kind monument to honor all children present, past, and sadly, future who have fought pediatric cancer and lost their battles. "These brave hero's, like my Jacob, fought bravely and were, are, and will always be the forgers of the roadmap to a cure which will one day exist. While some pediatric cancers have become more treatable through the bravery of those in the past, others like DIPG have not."
