In the podcast below, you can listen to the parents of Aubreigh talk about her fight against DIPG, and how they plan to help fund research. And they also discuss the Lemon Face Gala, set for March 28th in Mobile.
Here is more info:
Aubreigh’s Army Foundation 328 is named for Aubreigh Nicholas, an 11-year-old girl from Mobile, Alabama who battled DIPG for 11 months before passing away in August of 2018. On her 11th birthday, March 28, 2018, Aubreigh started the Lemon Face Challenge to bring awareness to the monster called DIPG, the deadliest form of childhood cancer. Aubreigh's Lemon Face Challenge brought awareness across the globe to this deadly disease including participation from Nick Saban, the LA Dodgers, Good Morning Great Britain, and many more.
This foundation now commits to continue the legacy Aubreigh started and to continue her fight against DIPG. We are proud of our impressive Board of Directors, including local business owners and preeminent doctors in the field. By supporting this event, you can be a part of the team fighting for a cure for these children.
Aubreigh's Army Foundation 328 has partnered with the international organization, the DIPG Collaborative. The DIPG Collaborative is a collection of foundations with the shared mission of efficiently funding and inspiring research for DIPG with the belief that through a cure for DIPG, significant advances in other cancer research will be made.
This Gala will include both silent and live auctions and an exciting program to showcase important developments in DIPG research. We are excited to have Dr. Kathy Warren from the National Institute of Health in Bethesda,Maryland who has agreed to speak at our event on the research she is doing to fight DIPG. Dr. Felicia Wilson, pediatric oncologist and hematologist with USA Health System will also speak at this event.
Tickets include your entry to the gala, dinner, and drinks. Cocktail attire.
Lets give our girl the biggest birthday celebration ever in honor of the anniversary of the Lemon Face Challenge and her birthday!
