Super Jon- A Local DIPG Warrior


We found out about Jon a few weeks ago, from a friend whose son is Jon’s friend and schoolmate.  To support Jon and his family, please visit his Facebook page (link).

From his Facebook page:

Jon is 6 year’s old and was diagnosed Oct. 17, 2013 with an inoperable brain tumor known as DIPG (see link below). There are less than 300 cases per year world wide, and occur usually only in children. The average age of a child diagnosed with DIPG is between 5 – 9 years old.
Jon is currently receiving radiation treatments at CHOC and is doing
very well.
Jon is in the first grade and loves to be with his classmates. Jon loves doing all the normal activities a 6 year old boy does. He is know for his great smile and energetic spirit. Jon Jon is a blessing to all who know him!
Thank you to all who have graciously given to Jon’s parent’s, Joe and Arisa for his care, they have been overwhelmed by everyone’s support. Please continue praying for Jon Jon and the entire Lorenz family. We are expecting God to do great things!

In the Press Enterprise, there was a story printed about Jon (link) and the fundraisers that we can support to help Jon and his family through this difficult journey.

We hope that the Superman hat makes this incredible 6 year old boy feel strong against this brain cancer battle, as he is already a Superhero in our eyes.
