Our amazing team of family and friends have been a great support in our grass roots efforts to raise DIPG awareness and in supporting research.
December 11, 2009-April 14, 2014
Maiyanna, with her amazing will and strength was a silent leader who showed everyone that she encountered how to love. Even those who never met her were captivated by her pictures and beautiful spirit. Maiy taught us all to fight gracefully, no matter what we are facing. Her desire and passion for life, friends and family, will continue to inspire everyone who knows her story. Maiy’s battle has had a far reaching impact beyond those she has personally encountered. Maiyanna shed a bright light coast to coast as people learned about her fight with DIPG.
Our hope is to eradicate DIPG. We will continue to celebrate Maiyanna’s life and honor her legacy by continuing to raise DIPG awareness and support research through the Maiyanna Marie Antoinette Clemons Mc-Carthy DIPG Research Student Scholarship.
