Building Awareness Today For Tomorrow’s Cure

Lynette Apodaca

The Marc Jr Foundation is dedicated to assisting families who have to help their child facing a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (“DIPG”) diagnosis. The Marc Jr Foundation is able to assist families and hospitals because of the generosity and hard work of those who support the Foundation. The Marc Jr Foundation has successfully funded their Family Support Initiatives through community-supported events and plans to continue this tradition and direct all money donated to Research toward Research, but because we have seen a rise in grant applications and requests for educational information, your financial assistance would be appreciated more than ever.

Through the heartbreak my family has experienced from this horrific loss, we believe and have seen how God has given us each other, and with this instrument, God will and has already made us a dynamic force willing and wanting to help other Children.

Through this Foundation, we are committed to being a positive representation of change, by demonstrating compassion & integrity in all that we do. We believe that distinguished financial performance is a necessity and not an end itself, but as means to accomplish our broader mission. ~ Lynette Apodaca (co-founder of the Marc Jr Foundation)
