Review for Cristian Rivera Foundation, Edgewater, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Cristian Rivera Foundation is a beautiful and amazing non-profit that seeks to help find a cure for DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor that effects children typically between the ages of 2 and 10, by helping to fund important research and trials while also helping the children and families impacted by this terrible disease. I first learned about the Foundation through a friend who invited me to the 2019 Gala and I was immediately touched by the heartfelt work this great organization does. The love and desire in that room to help DIPG research and the kids who suffer from this awful disease was raw and real. I left that evening knowing I had to be part of this organization because I wanted to make a difference. I was recently invited to join the Board and I continue to be inspired. The founder, John “Gungie” Rivera, is 100% committed to the Foundation’s mission, as he sadly lost his son to DIPG. No parent should ever have to suffer the loss of a child and no child should ever feel hopeless or as though a cure is not possible - The Cristian Rivera Foundation is helping to make this sentiment a reality. Please come learn more about the Foundation and the great work we do. You won’t regret it and you just may help to save a child’s life.
