Mission Statement

The Cristian Rivera Foundation is a non-profit organization that is committed to finding a cure for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Our foundation strives to increase public awareness of DIPG, as well as raise funds that will provide financial support to families and medical facilities that conduct innovative research and clinical trials. Through its many efforts, the Cristian Rivera Foundation has helped build the foundation that supports the groundbreaking research that will one-day cure DIPG. The Cristian Rivera Foundation funds the work of Dr. Mark Souweidane, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery of Weill Cornell Medical Center - Memorial Sloane (Kettering) Cancer Center and Dr. Oren Becher of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital and the Lurie Cancer Center at Northwestern.

Description

On January 22, 2007, I received the worst news of my life. My 4 year-old son, Cristian, was diagnosed with an inoperable Pontine Glioma brain stem tumor which generally affects kids 1 to 9 years-old. It has no cure and it also has a life expectancy of 3 to 18 months. Cristian’s battle for his life lasted 2 years and a few days (passing away on January 25, 2009) but the new battle in honor of his new life has begun. Cristian, I love and miss you dearly. Ever since you passed away, I committed myself to help find a cure for this deadly disease so that no other family would have to go through the grief of losing their beloved children. In keeping with this commitment, I have created the Cristian Rivera Foundation in your honor.
