Why We Fight

Jimmy Moran was a special kid. He loved to make people laugh.  He always had a smile on his face. He loved to make up games, draw, play baseball, he was a black belt, loved to play with his dog, and was the best son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend.

Our world came crashing down when Jimmy suddenly developed double vision. What we had initially thought was just a lazy eye turned out to be a terrible diagnosis on January 27, 2022—DIPG. We were told that there were clinical trials, but none had been successful in curing DIPG and they would likely just provide Jimmy a few more months. Finding out that our perfectly healthy son would likely die within a year was absolutely devastating. 

Jimmy made a to-do list during one of his hospital stays.  One of the items on his list was “Be happy for no reason”.   He lived that every day, up until he went to heaven on September 2, 2022.   As hard as it is, we try to live by Jimmy’s words and find our own happiness.  Right now, the best way we know how to do that is by working towards our goal of finding a cure for DIPG.
