Warrior Jace Thompson Foundation-
Drive Out DIPG 

The Warrior Jace Thompson Foundation (WJTF)  is a non-profit organization founded in honor of our precious 5 year old son, Jace Kinley Thompson, who courageously fought DIPG for 347 days. He left us on October 5, 2018.

The Warrior Jace Thompson Foundation Mission is to raise awareness of DIPG, an inoperable and aggressive pediatric brain cancer and to also provide funding specifically for DIPG Clinical Trial Research.

Our Values


  • Determination.  We are determined because the battle to Drive Out DIPG will be challenging but we will face the challenge with Jace's unwavering determination. 


  • Inspiration. We are inspired by Jace and the other precious and beautiful children that deserved a chance to live.


  • Honor.  We are led by our desire to honor the children lost to DIPG and those fighting it today.


  • Focus.  We are focused on the responsibility for making educated and thoughtful decisions to increase the impact of the funds our donors so graciously give towards the goal of DIPG research.


  • Communication. We are committed to raising awareness of DIPG and the lack of funding for all childhood cancer research.
