"Cristian meant a lot to everybody. Even through his illness, he was a very strong child who had strength and maturity well beyond his years. He was still able to bring a smile to everyone’s face—everyone who knew him and everyone who had contact with him. It’s an honor of mine to be affiliated with the Cristian Rivera Foundation."
