More Lemon Face Challenge Videos! East Lake and Gautier Rehab Centers

East Lake Physical Therapy & Sports Rehabilitation and Gautier Rehab Services accept the Lemon Face Challenge from Singing River Health Systems!

The Lemon Face Challenge is to help spread awareness for DIPG. DIPG is Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma and it is a rare and deadly pediatric brain cancer.

  • DIPG primarily affects children, with most diagnoses occurring between 5 and 7 years of age.
  • DIPG makes up 10-15% of all brain tumors in children, with about 150-300 new diagnoses per year in the United States.
  • Unlike many other pediatric cancers, there has been little progress in improving treatments and cure rates for DIPG over the last few decades.
  • Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of children with DIPG survive two years from diagnosis. **

This disease has affected several children in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area. Singing River Health System and Encore Rehabilitation are doing their part to raise awareness of DIPG.
