Help Emiliano

Thank you for donating to The Cristian Rivera Foundation in our efforts to help Emiliano and his family as they fight DIPG. All donations will go directly toward their medical expenses as Emiliano receives treatment through Dr. Souweidane’s clinical trial. All donations are tax-deductible.

Give With Love

The Cristian Rivera Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization seeking to rid the world of DIPG by funding research, spreading awareness, and supporting families. In a short period of time, we were able to bring Emiliano and his family to NYC and get him treated on Dr. Souweidane’s trial. Andrea and Josue, Emiliano’s parents, have both quit their jobs in order to care for Emiliano full-time and are in need of an immense amount of financial support for their medical expenses. Please consider making a donation today to help them during this critical time.

A tax-deductible donation to the Cristian Rivera Foundation will support ground-breaking DIPG research toward our ultimate goal of finding a cure. Donations also help us create DIPG awareness and financially support families affected by DIPG. To date, the Cristian Rivera Foundation has donated over $2,500,000.00 toward these goals.

Emiliano is a 2-year-old boy from Mexico whose life changed forever in May 2020. He received the devastating diagnosis of DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), an inoperable tumor found on the brainstem that has no cure. It’s predicted that Emi has less than a year to live. In his time of darkness, Emi’s parents, Andrea and Josue, exhausted all their resources to give their son a chance to fight for his life. 

With the help of the Cristian Rivera Foundation, Emiliano was treated on their clinical trial with Dr. Mark Souweidane at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Emi has been doing well since then and is staying in NYC with his parents as his progress is being monitored. However, this chance at life is incredibly costly and his parents are doing all they can to face unimaginable medical and living expenses. Please consider joining my efforts to help them by donating here We can help relieve their financial burden so they can put all of their energy into caring for Emi. A donation of any amount can make a big difference. Thank you. #DIPGWarrior #DIPGAwareness #CureDIPG
