Jace Ward


DIPG: May 2019 – Present


Jace is a 20-year-old college student from Kansas. Jace is majoring in business economics and pre-law. He loves a good time, good debate and good adventure.  Jace’s mantra during this DIPG journey has been “I can’t die, I’m busy.” It is Jace’s desire to provide impact on earth by speaking out about the need for DIPG awareness, shared data and research funding for cures. He recognizes the many blessings in this journey and has put his faith in God.


Two weeks following radiation, Jace visited 32 house and senate offices on Capital Hill advocating for DIPG awareness.  He has been a panelist at a National Institute of Health meeting speaking about patient access to genomic data. In addition, Jace has been providing his perspective to founder Adam Resnick of the Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium and the team at Oncoeutics regarding expanded access to ONC201, treatment trials of ONC206 and the need for FDA approval of ONC201.
