Claire Bear cause of death

Claire Bear cause of death was DIPG. DIPG is a form of brain cancer. This type of tumor is super aggressive and there is currently no cure. The average lifespan (with treatment) of a child who has a DIPG diagnosis is 8-11 months.

On May 28, 2020, Claire was admitted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital after a pediatrician’s CT detected a tumor on her brain.

She then underwent an MRI, which revealed a tumor on both her cervical spine and brain stem. Although the neurosurgeon and oncologist thought it was DIPG, a biopsy would be necessary for conclusive results.

In addition to the tumor’s location, the biopsy was dangerous since the tumor was bleeding.

The neurosurgeon advised the family to proceed with the biopsy after speaking with colleagues throughout the nation about the MRI findings and dangers. Claire performed flawlessly after the biopsy.

She didn’t show any extra or worsening symptoms, despite the doctors’ warnings that they could be due to the trauma from the treatment itself.

They were in the hospital for a total of ten days before being discharged with steroids and instructions to begin radiation treatment.

Although official pathology results wouldn’t be available for a while, this was still the recommended course of action.

She had a PICC line implanted so she could be sedated for her radiation treatments, and she was fitted for her radiation mask.

The first day of radiation treatment began on June 15 and went on for 6 weeks on a daily basis. She battled the aftereffects of the sedatives and was keen to begin treatment awake (swimming and eating before treatment were additional motivators!).

She received her PICC line after three consecutive sedation-free practice procedures that we performed.

On Friday, June 26, the PICC line was eliminated! She jumped into grandma Dawn’s pool with all of her cousins exactly 12 hours later.

On Tuesday, July 7th, the pathology report was delivered, and it confirmed DIPG.

After a long battle with DIPG, Claire Bear passed away.

Claire Bear cause of death has left the community inconsolable.
