Mystic Force Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Pediatric Cancer research. Sylvia has turned her loss into a cause to find the cure. She fights for funds, to make the plight of the families, also going thru her pain, a lot more pleasant. She created the Heros Hangout for kids to have a fun in a sterile and safe atmosphere. MFF is a cause I cherish very much as it brings, children going thru so much, a little happiness.

The Mystic Force Foundation does amazing work in this community. They focus on raising awareness of childhood cancer and funds for research. In addition, they change lives of kids in the middle of treatment through their Family Fun Nights at the local hospital and their Heroe's Hangout gives kids in treatment (and usually immuno-compromised by chemo) an opportunity to enjoy parties, games and events they otherwise cannot attend. Most importantly, everything Mystic Force does is FREE to these kids and families. The toys, the location, the parties, EVERYTHING is donated and all work is done by volunteers. Not a single penny goes to overhead, administration, or salaries... 100% GOES TO HELPING KIDS OR FUNDING RESEARCH. There are not many charities that can say that. All of this is made possible by the generosity and energy of Mystic Force's tireless Founder, Silvia Vanni. Silvia is a inspirational figure. She has turned the painful and tragic loss of her amazing son Salvatore into a movement which is changing the conversation and trajectory for childhood cancer research and services. Please get involved and support the cause!!

By far the most supportive advocate to end childhood cancer. This organization is about the care, live and representation of the entire family who must go through the heartache of a child with cancer. Monthly visits and celebrations with hero’s and gifts at hospitals. A fully funded and active Hero's Hangout playroom where children in who need a germ free space to play can go. Most important is this CEO’s never ending energy to advocate, secure funds and lend her voice, her own story of loss in the halls of Tallahassee. Priceless non-profit!

Mystic Force Foundation is an amazing organization that we were introduced to when my son was first diagnosed with cancer. The love and support this organization provides to the families and children battling cancer is wonderful. The Hero’s Hangout is an awesome place for the kids to have fun and be themselves without the worry of them being exposed to anything. I will forever be grateful for this organization and what they do daily to spread awareness for pediatric childhood cancer, and the love and support they provide the families and children.

I’ve never met a woman more dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer, than Silvia Vanni , founder of the Mystic Force Foundation. She works endless hours planning events and fundraisers to find a cure. I’ve worked beside her and have seen first hand how she makes a difference in the lives of these sick children from family fun nights at Nicholas Children’s Hospital In Miami in Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood Fl. to building out a storefront facility called Hero’s Hangout which is a safe haven for children with cancer to come and do arts & crafts, play video games, watch movies and just be themselves along with other children who are just like them. Hero’s Hangout is filled with toys for all ages and no child leaves empty handed. It’s a magical place!

Mystic Force Foundation has been a part of my life for the last 7 years since my little brother was diagnosed with cancer. Every event, every fundraiser, every ‘Wish’ granted is accomplished with love and support from our very giving community. Seeing the happiness on the kids faces would truly melt your heart.

I attended my first Mystic Force Foundation event in early October and was so impressed with The Hero's Hangout, a sterile and safe game room for kids and their families to enjoy. Ms. Vanni and staff raise monies and awareness by joining with community partners to find a cure for many of these debilitating diseases. Please donate as much and as often as possible.  100% of your donation goes directly to Childhood Cancer Research! So grateful for all that they do!

We became affiliated with the Mystic Force Foundation when our son was battling childhood cancer. The Mystic Force Foundation provided support during a time when our family needed it most. Now, that our son has completed his cancer treatment, we continue to stay connected with the foundation to help spread awareness of this horrific disease.

I have had the opportunity to go and volunteer at a few events at the Hang Out and each time it was amazing. Silvia is very organized and has plenty for the volunteers to do with the kids visiting. Each event she hosts there are filled with lots of children and families going through cancer treatment and it is so great to see how happy the children are when they are there and the parents as well.
