Violet Foundation History & Mission

The Violet Foundation was developed by the Napleton family in remembrance of Violet, who passed away not too long after she was diagnosed with a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) tumor -- a form of brain cancer that has less than 1% survival rate and no effective treatment. Violet was the light of the lives for all those around her, and her loss is felt every day. No family should have to go through the loss of a child, which is why we've created the Violet Foundation to fight for a cure and stand with our community.

The standard of care for DIPG is largely the same as it was in 1962, and only 4% of all government-funded cancer research goes toward childhood cancers. Some of the current immunotherapy trials have shown remarkable promise, so there is hope -- but much work needs to be done and resources are scarce. That's why private funding from organizations like the Violet Foundation is so important.

The Violet Foundation's complementary mission is to support the families of pediatric brain cancer patients in every way they can. Many parents are forced to continue working to pay the bills and keep insurance active while simultaneously supporting their child and coping with their own emotional experience. The Violet Foundation seeks to ease the burden placed on these families during this incredibly difficult time.
