As founder of the Cristian Rivera Foundation, I would like to take a moment to express my sincerest gratitude to one of our most active and dedicated committee members, Solange Osorio. Solange has been a committee member basically since the foundation began and even though she has never had or lost a child to DIPG, she has shown more devotion to finding a cure and comforting and helping DIPG families than anyone I know. She selflessly dedicates time from her busy schedule every week and has even put her education second to the needs of the DIPG community. She volunteers at every Cristian Rivera Foundation event, attends many other DIPG events, and has provided the décor for every Cristian Rivera Foundation Gala, even going so far as to skip shopping for her outfit to the Third Gala just to make sure that everything was running smoothly. Solange has shown amazing compassion towards DIPG families and has been the communicator between the foundation and the DIPG community. I communicate with the doctors and certain foundations, and she deals with everyone else. She always remembers to send a Christmas card to a DIPG family, an email to find out how a sick child is doing, a message of encouragement in tough times, an acknowledgment of DIPG Angel anniversaries and everything in between. She is well-known within the DIPG community for the kindheartedness and care she puts into every interaction. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. Thank you for being my friend and standing by me in my quest to rid the world of DIPG. For this and so much more, I Love Her.
