A NOTE FROM Maiy's Mom


We welcome opportunities to support DIPG Families. Please contact us with any questions.

Maiy's Miracle is a non-profit 100% volunteer organization interested in raising DIPG awareness, supporting DIPG families through education, research and DIPG brain tumor donation.

Mission + Vision


Maiyannas diagnosis was devastating to our family. However, those of you supporting Maiy's Miracle along with Jehovah's Holy Spirit gave us both the strength to Never Ever Give Up and make the best decisions we could. Maiy fell asleep with the resurrection hope found at Acts 24:15. Although Jehovah's Kingdom can provide the ultimate relief from DIPG, we can help researchers today find a cure by donating DIPG tumor. Thank you,  for all your support!   

-Mycah Clemons



It has been suggested that a cure for DIPG might result in a cure for almost every other type of cancer (Brain Tumor Facts, Smiles For Sophie Forever, Retrieved Feb. 15, 2015, from http://smilesforsophieforever.org/awareness/braintumorfacts.aspx).

Advancement in DIPG research could improve with an increase in DIPG tumor donation. Maiy's parents made the difficult choice to donate Maiyanna's tumor to associates of The Monje Lab Stanford, California (http://neurology.stanford.edu/labs/monjelab/contact.html). Please consult your doctors or advocates regarding tumor donation.
