The most common symptoms of DIPG include problems with balance and walking, issues with the eyes, problems chewing and swallowing, nausea and vomiting, morning headache, facial weakness or drooping. The primary treatment for DIPG, which Laia will begin on Oct. 1, is radiation therapy. Chemotherapy may also be used alongside radiation, but surgery is rarely an option because of the tumor’s sensitive location.

There is no cure for DIPG, and survival rates remain very low, according to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Jenkins told SWNS that Laia has been given between nine months and year to live with treatment.

“We are still trying to come to terms with it, trying to understand it, watching our wee lassie getting worse,” he told the news outlet. “After the radiotherapy, she might get better for a while as well. We’ve been told with treatment it will be about 12 months, without treatment it will be between three to six months. We’ve been through panic, anger, and helplessness.”
