This is all possible because of your support.  We extend a big Thank You to all of our supporters, without you this wouldn’t have been possible. “We are so honored to have received this award for our second consecutive year. Fundraising is very challenging and at times extremely frustrating. This award validates our efforts thus helping to motivate and empower CRF to continue to achieve the goal of our foundation, to save the lives of children affected by DIPG.  We will continue to create awareness and continue to fund the clinical trials that will one day find a cure for this deadly disease” said CRF’s Board of Director’s Member Andy Epstein

We can’t wait to see each and every one of you at our 11th Annual Celebrity Gala on November 13th, 2019 at Capitale in New York City.

Remembering Cristian Rivera Foundation
Honorary Committee Member
The Late & Great Anthony Mason
on what would have been his
50th Birthday


Today, December 14th, the Cristian Rivera Foundation would like to take a moment and wish our Honorary Committee Member, the Late and Great Anthony Mason a very Happy Birthday in Heaven.

Anthony Mason was an amazing committee member and was so dedicated to the foundation and to our mission of never to relenting in our fight until we find a cure for DIPG. Anthony Mason’s work ethic and dedication still resonates with  The Cristian Rivera Foundation, we have made remarkable progress in finding a cure because of Anthony’s vision.

“Being on the Cristian Rivera Foundation Committee means a lot to me,” Mason stated proudly. “I know what it’s like with my own kids and though you can never know what it’s like for someone to lose a child, I can only imagine since I know how I feel when my kids only get hurt. I want people to get involved and start doing the research to cure this disease because we as parents should not have to bury our children.”

Anthony Mason is a legend, and will forever be missed.
