I am raising funds for CRF so I am shaving my head on Christmas Eve in memory of my hero, my daughter, Meghan Farina.

On September 28, 2007, Meghan was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly aggressive tumor located in the pons of the brainstem. She died just nine months later, July 13, 2008, at the age of 13. The last time I did this I raised $4,000 dollars, and my goal this year is 5,000 dollars. D.I.P.G. is a brain tumor that kills over 200 children each year. When a family gets the news that their child has D.I.P.G., they are told that there is just a 1 percent survival rate and that their child will likely be dead within a year. The Cristian Rivera Foundation is changing that.

Thanks to medical trials sponsored by the Cristian Rivera Foundation, children are living longer than ever before. 4-year-old Emiliano was told in May 2020 that he had 8 months to live, and more than 3 years later, he is still fighting and showing signs of improvement. However, families like Emiliano’s are exhausting all their resources in order to give their children a chance to live.

CRF has given tens of thousands to ensure that dozens of families can access treatment for their children. Please consider joining my efforts to help families just like mine affected by DIPG by donating to my fundraiser. A donation of any amount makes a big difference for this underfunded disease. Together, let’s make childhood cancer deaths a thing of the past. Thank you. You can also donate by mailing your donation to CRF PO Box 656 Edgewater, NJ 07020. Please reference in honor of Meghan.
