The family of a 9-year-old with the devastating diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is filling her life with travel and other positive experiences. 

"She's still smiling and happy, [but] she gets nervous, so we try and explain it as best as possible," her mother tells ABC News. "We try and keep smiles on our faces so she's not scared, but it's hard."
