Burns Bridge

Burns Bridge

In conjunction with Governor Charlie Baker announcing today, May 17, as DIPG Awareness Day, Government Center Station, South Station, North Station, the MassDOT Burns Bridge, and the Zakim Bridge will be lit in green today in support of six-year-old Devin Suau. Devin is a Framingham resident diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) who met with Governor Baker on May 3.

“It is a great honor working with our partners to help bring awareness to this awful disease and to see the strength of Devin and his family,” said MBTA Chief Operating Officer Jeff Gonneville.

DIPG is a rare, aggressive form of inoperable brain cancer typically found in children ages 5-9 that, over time, impacts essential bodily functions, including heart rate, breathing, swallowing, eyesight, and balance. Devin was diagnosed with DIPG on January 25.

With DC Comics’ the Green Lantern as Devin’s favorite superhero, the MBTA and MassDOT join the #WhyNotDevin effort to raise awareness of DIPG and support Devin and the Suau family by lighting these stations, the Burns Bridge, and the Zakim Bridge in green.
