Review for Cristian Rivera Foundation, Edgewater, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since its inception the Cristian Rivera Foundation has been at the forefront in finding a cure for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) by raising funds for medical facilities and scientific clinical trials headed by the leading Pediatric Neurosurgeon in the space, Dr. Mark M. Souweidane, of Sloan Memorial Kettering, educating our respective communities on DIPG and most importantly providing emotional and financial support to the families impacted by the terrible disease. We will see a cure in our lifetime because of strong individuals such as its founder, John Rivera, who knows first hand what its like to loose a child to DIPG, the dedicated board members who have been inspired by Cristian Rivera Foundation's mission, the many lives Cristian and John have inspired over the years and best of all, a very special girl who is part of the clinical trial funded by CRF, hit a milestone, seeing no tumor growth for the last 5 years. As a father of two, I am grateful for being a part of the Cristian Rivera Foundation's quest to finding a cure. Full steam ahead.
