In brief: DIPG
The overall cure rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (all) is great at ~ 90%.
Medulloblastoma is also improving at ~75%. On the other end of the spectrum is diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (dipg), a tumor located in the pons (middle) of the brain stem. The 2 year survival rate is only 10%, with practically no survivors at 5 years (the usual metric used for cure).
