Ayla Grace Slivka was a sweet, silly, funny, creative, science-loving, game-loving, beautiful child who was strong and fierce. She brought joy and laughter to so many lives. On July 6, 2021, Ayla was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer known as DIPG. This form of brain cancer affects about 300 children annually in the USA. There are currently no effective treatments to cure this terrible disease that steals so many beautiful children. Ayla sadly earned her angel wings on June 29th, 2022.
DIPG is rare, so research grants and funding to find a cure have been limited. The Slivka Family is on a mission to change this! Please consider donating to help fund research to find a cure for DIPG. The Cure Starts Now!
Thank you for choosing to donate to The Cure Starts Now Foundation. 100% of this donation, after credit card processing fees, goes directly towards research to find the homerun cure for cancer starting with pediatric brain cancer research.
